Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
HI there, I am Cam. Can you tell me if the noise is in the front axle or the transfer case?
As much as that’s good,it won't rule anything out. Taking out the shaft will cause everything to be unloaded. What you are going to need is to listen carefully under the vehicle while its being shifted to see.Can you also tell me what speed you are shifting at?
Sorry I was in the washroom.
If the front diff is the issue, the axle that slides to engage the front axle is the issue. The gear slides to connect the 2 parts of the axle.IF the transfer case then it could be tire.You also need to check the circumference of the tires. In a flat parking lot make a mark at the very bottom of the tire. Then drive ahead 1 full turn of the tire until the left front is back at the very bottom. Then compare the marks. All must be with in 1 inch. More than that will cause issues in the transfer case.
Based on the fact you say its worse with speed, that tells me it may be tires. WE need to check, the circumference of each using the method I mentioned.
It would be best to reconnect after friday then ask that usually rules the issue out.
Ok, let me know.
OK so the next step is to remove the front right axle assembly and check out that sliding gear.
