Yes, on a 2WD truck like mine, the "thump" on take off is lack of lubrication of the slip joint splines. But eventually the grease wears off again, requiring it to be lubricated again.
I was hoping someone had a better grease than that which is recommended by Ford so that I can put more time and distance between doing the job again.
