96 olds bravada rear axle went out. replaced with matching

Customer Question

96 olds bravada rear axle went out. replaced with matching rear axle from local bone yard. Now getting noise from front axle or transfer case. a steady clicking which sounds like the front hubs. after less than a quarter mile test drive I felt a large clunk which felt like something jammed and almost stopped the car. Just to note , the rear axle was the correct gear ratio. Any guesses?

that was my first guess, not the same gear ratio as the front.

Are you sure on the gear ratio?

Is this a 4wd or awd?
