My 1999 Rav 4 is normally a front wheel drive but can switch to 4 wheel drive. Do I need alignment in all 4 wheels or just the front?


Most alignment shops these days use a 4 wheel system,so they see all 4 wheels anyway,I would try to tell the shop if the rear is ok ,just do the front.
That 2 wheel 4 wheel price is a moneymaker
So hard to find an honest shop.

How do I activate the 4 wheel drive for snow highway driving?


They didn't make Grand Cherokees in '86, so I assume you mean '96?

I'm also assuming it is indeed a 4x4 and not a two wheel drive...sorry, I have to ask!

All the V8's GC's were Quadra-Trac. Please confirm this with what is label on your shifter. If so, it should say "4Hi, N, and 4Lo".

The Quadra Trac system has a viscous coupling. Meaning, that when the rear wheels start to slip, it heats the coupling up, and engages the front wheels.

This system typically put about 95% of the power to the rear wheels, and only about 5% goes to the front during normal driving, so it's essentially in 2wd mode.

When you put the transmission shifter into neutral, and pull your transfer case down to 4lo, then you have all four wheels locked. Do not drive like this on dry pavement.

To answer your questions, the 4x4 should automatically engage when the rear wheels start to slip. It is a seamless transition and you really won't be able to tell.

If you're in real bad snow, then pull it down to 4lo. That'll lock all four wheels in and give you greatest traction.

Drive safe.

2005 Ford Explorer Rear Wheel


sounds like your rear wheel bearing has collapsed, which in summery is a very bad thing i would not get your male friend to replace this as it is a very big job witch requires specialty tool eg. 10 tone press.
also if the bearing is replaced wrong it can course feather problems at the worst i will loss the rear wheel at the best the abs may stop working.
your best bet is to have the car towed to a ford dealer our to a differential specialist the latter may be a cheaper option.

full credit to you for jacking up your car and checking it that is more then most people do these days

good luck and let me no how you go
