Hmm wounder if this is the problem I have with mine. Although I have a little clunk in it as well. Shop told me its the Intermediate sharft ? Same thing ?
They said it has a little play and would need a new sharft, But at over $600 for the part alone its put me off. I'm from Australia though so we get stung for
parts over here and hit harder with postage when buying from usa.

Update: I tried the JB Weld, it cracked off so that tells me my slip joint is loose. The cheapest OEM i can find is $161 for the intermediate shaft. Anybody replace theirs yet?

FYI: MOPAR Part# 52088253AG replaces the old # 55315072AA
