the angry sparrow noise comes from the cv ball on the t case end of the front driveshaft. you should pack it with grease when you replace the u-joints. I drilled and tapped mine for a grease fitting so now when the bird sings,I can just shoot in some lube

The auto parts stores carry a ball seat kit, but it's a lot easier to buy that whole centering piece. I think the price difference was about $7. Save yourself the headache and get the centering piece, rather than the ball kit.

If you don't want to tap it for a grease fitting, you can buy a needle tip for your grease gun to grease it. It's already set up for that.
