Had an issue similar to this with a customer astro van. It was the front differential that destroyed itself. We took the front driveshaft off and he drove it like that for a while. Then sold it. So, I am not sure what happened inside that front axle, but is was locked up. As long as we took off the driveshaft, the spider gears were the only thing spinning internally. So it could be driven again.

SOURCE: replace a outer cv boot

There are aftermarket boot kits you can purchase. If the tear isn’t bad. You can clean the boot with rubbing alcohol. Then cover with a small amount of RTV. Allow the RTV to cure for at least 12 hours.

SOURCE: 99 Silverado 4-wheel drive not engaging

It does not seem that sufficient diagnosis was done. No, you cant give a specific diagnosis like that without tearing unit down. It's likely that they told you the most common failure and left it at that. Likely there is a problem with your unit...I think this becomes more of a trust issue than a mechanical one. A second opinion from an independent reputable shop may help but either way, you need to have it fixed. In not using it much, it makes me wonder how it got worn.
good luck

SOURCE: 01 gmc sonoma front diff leaking near the cv shaft

faulty seals are the common culprits for this. You may want to take the axle out to have it replaced and check the extent of the damage.

I have a 2005 ram 1500 4x4.when i put it four wheel drive high it feels like its in low and back tire on driver side skids


There's something seriously wrong in the transfer case or controls. It seems the rear driveshaft is locked up, and the front wheels are driving. The driver's side rear tire is skidding because it's trying to turn backward - rear passenger rear tire is going forward and rear differential has no option but to turn the driver tire in reverse (driveshaft locked). DON'T TRY TO DRIVE IT. Get it checked out and fixed.

I have a 1994 k1500 6.5l turbo diesel and every time I put it into 4hi my truck goes about two feet then I hear a loud clunk and the truck feels as though it is going over a speedbump in the front because...


Wow. A snapped side shaft sounds serious. If you lift the front end of the truck, (or the rear end for that matter) the wheels will appear to be counter rotating, it is the way a differential works. If you turn the left wheel forward, the right wheel will turn backwards, and vice versa.
When you change to 4wd the front end does make a rather loud clunking sound as the gears engage. You should therefore change while the truck is stationary, then slowly move forward or back until the 4wd engages, then take off.
If your truck went OK on ice, it should go as well on pavement, just don't try to engage 4x4 while moving.

2000 Mazda B4000 4x4 rattling noise from front of vehicle


Check all the plastic cowlings and air dams to make sure they are not loose and rattling in the wind when you drive down the road. Check the exhaust system for any broken or loose hangers. Hope this helps.

Bad sway bar


Could be CV Shaft or Hub Bearing as well. Jack up the front of the car, support with Jack Stands and check for play in wheels/hubs/bearings/linkage by grabbing wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock positions for tie rod ends and steering linkage, then 12 and 6 o'clock positions for bearings. You should barely be able to feel play. If you think it is more than acceptable climb under the car while someone else performs the tasks above. Turn wheels for excessive brake noise or out of tolerance discs. Out of tolerance discs will cause premature brake wear and cause pads to move around in the caliper sometimes before starting to grind. Finally, and what I think you're hearing/feeling is the CV Shaft. Grab shaft, move around feeling for excessive play in joint or splines on each end. Turn steering all the way lock to lock and turn wheels at each lock, forward and backward, feel/listen for clicking/popping. Most of the time you can quickly easily diagnose bad CV Joints in a parking lot by slowly, safely driving in a circle forwards and backwards making the joint noise more pronounced. If it is a CV Joint, my advice would be to spend the extra few bucks and replace the whole shaft while you're there. Its quicker and easier requiring less specialty tools to complete the job.

It sounds like a problem within the front differential, possibly broken spider gears. If so broken gear shrapnel may be jamming that wheels output shaft.

Grinding or poping sounds when making slow tight corners


Could be ball joints are bad. But if its a 4x4 the cv joint half (axle shaft) is bad.
