Clicking noise?

I installed my 4" Rough Country lift about a month ago and I have some pretty bad vibes coming from my rear drive shaft. The clicking noise was getting really bad so I just replaced both front and rear U-joints for the rear shaft.

I have approximately 5" of suspension lift so having to replace a couple universal joints comes as no surprise, but even after replacing both of them the clicking noise is just as bad.

So, if it's not the u-joints, what is it?

noise while going straight, turning or both? Do you have a tc drop or sye installed? Are your yokes binding slightly?

It's always going. All of my joints are new but I'll check the front shaft.

I currently have a 1" transfer case drop but I'm going to be purchasing a SYE soon.

check the bolts on the straps on the rear shaft. Those can sometimes contact the yoke with alot of driveline angle. That and the yoke itself can sometimes bind

What's the best way to check to see if it's binding?
