Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
The bar that connects with the axle from the transfer case is rubbing "metal to mtl" making a screeching noise, what should i do or what could be wrong with the inside of the transfer case on a 1997 ford explorer sport 4.0 sohc awd.?
It started when i had 225 70 16" tires on the back and 225 60's on the front! hellllllp!..... i recently put on a half shaft or drive shaft on the passenger side but it didnt stop thats when i discovered exactly where the problem was coming from. im wondering if that bar needs replaced or if there is a bushing or something inside there that can just be repaired let me know.
Awd and 4wd vehicles can't have 2 different size tires run or it will damage the transfer case,but you should be able to get a new bar i beleive what your talking about is called a torsion bar
