Default I'm now completely stummped.

My truck recently has a clicking noise that increases with speed. but something even worse. Whenever I'm coming out of a turn and only when coming out of a turn. If I give her to much gas, it's like a trans slip but it's not. The rpm's jump up and then something grabs and jerks the truck forward. And the truck is also shifting weird since this all started.
I though maybe it was the yoke but it wasn't, so I'm completely lost.

The 2nd gens don't have CV axles, they're a solid front axle. I was gonna say check your axle u joints, but the jerking/rpm issue has me stumped.

It's not in fwd when it happens. I'm gonna open up the rear diff today to see if it's chewing it self up. and also I'm going to replace the transmission shift solenoid for my erratic shifting.

It maybe 2 separate issues.

Also, your axle u joints still spin even when you're in 2wd. Mine made a clicking/binding noise when they went bad. I could move my passenger side one by hand with it still on the truck.

I didn't want to chime in, because I'm really not sure. If understand what you're saying then very first thing that comes to mind would the torque converter.

I'm pretty sure I understand the symptoms you're describing, and that's what they'd indicate to me. I've always stayed away from transmissions just as much as gynecology. I've looked into them and put my fingers in there, but they're just not something I'm comfortable opening up.

I do know that when you turn, the outside of the vehicle's wheels turn faster than the inside wheels, and that may be enough tension to cause a bad torque converter to disengage. Once straightened out the tension neutralizes and the torque converter could be engaging, causing the jerking sensation without a shift issue. The clicking may be coming from the torque converter.

Any possibility of getting the rear off the ground and putting a little pressure on the drive-train with the e-brake and putting an ear under there to pinpoint the clicking noise?

Admittedly this is merely a suggestion applying mechanical aptitude.

Tranny oil level right? Thats all I could attest to the neutral 'jump' thing, the clicking frequency thing I would attest to axle joints, IF it's 4wd... 2 pennies worth...

I cleaned out and changed the oil in the differentials, just in case. i found the clicking noise, it's just bad universal joints like you guys said. For the jerking thing, i am going to look into a bad torque converter as mentioned. I'll keep you guys posted.
