2002 Ranger Edge 4x4 4.0
Has anyone seen (heard) this?

Sounds like a small ball rolling around inside the rear drive shaft at a walking speed only (slow RPM). Either with wheels on stands OR on the ground. If you hit the shaft with your hand it rattles inside, I checked the U-joints and they seem solid, I first thought it was coming from the Diff. but I put my ear up to it and It's the drive shaft. No noise at road speed or changing from forward to reverse and no vibrations. If it was a U-joint it should make a crunching sound like a typical joint thats bad or starting to go. It started all of a sudden.:confused:
