Do you have a vibration when your driving down the expressway? When was the last time you checked your u-joints and drive shafts? Drive shafts and u-Joints should be checked monthly when greasing truck to ensure safety on the road. The sooner the better. The longer a defective or worn down drive shaft, the more damage it will make. A defective u-joint or drive shaft can cause you to break down on the side of the road and cost you 1000's of dollars. When a drive shaft falls out on the road at 75 mph, it causes a lot of damage to electrical, air hoses, yokes, air bags, tires, and much more.
