My 05' Silverado is making some clanking noises around the area of the u-joint when I brake. I've been following the forum on the loose nuts on the midshaft and broken midshaft. I put the bike on a lift and opened up the boot covering the u-joint and found that the midshaft nut is tight and showed no movement. All of the bearings are tight, the spline and u-joint is in good condition. I did noticed there is about 1/8 revolution of slop rotation play in the midshaft with the bike in gear as I turned the wheel. I started the bike up and ran it on the lift and verified this play is the source of the clanking noise. Does anyone know if this amount of play in the midshaft is normal?

Thanks
