So I guess that front shaft was not as solid as you claimed it was the joint on the tcase side goes bad on those and its very hard to tell with the shaft in, get a used shaft from a junk hard like I said I had the same problem mine would sound horrible under load and go away when off throttle I got a used shaft from the local junk yard and all my noise was gone

It seemed ok to me lol. A shaft is cheap enough so ill give it a try.

If it is the bearings would the noise remain when l remove the shaft?

In most cases yes, I forget if you mentioned it but what tcase do you have if you have the 249 the noise would be gone with the shaft out not putting power to the front axel but if you have the 231 or 242 and drive around in 2wd and the noise was there with the shaft in and now is gone you should not have any axel issues imo
