Hello! Welcome to justanswer!


Thats a bad bearing inside the transfer case. It has to be replaced.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
how much should something like that cost and could it be the universal joint? and how long can I run with it like that?
Expert:  Anthony replied 5 years ago.
It could very well be a u joint. That would be good news. I had assumed you checked that. But if a u joint was bad it would shake always weather on or off the gas and would get way worse with speed. A transfer case rebuild is about $600.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the rear u joint has play in it where it goes into the transfer case, is that normal? cause the front Ujoint has no play at all where it enters the transfer case.
Expert:  Anthony replied 5 years ago.
There should be no play at all in any u joint. Fix that first. It would have been helpful if you said this in the first place as I would have told you right away to fix that problem for sure.
