One thing it could be is your torsion bars just ajust them very little at a time they are located near the back it is a single bolt connected close to the bar. Keep in mind this will lower and raise your front end a little bit and keep in mind unless you got perfectly balanced vehicle in 4 wheel it will pull just because all tires have tension on them at the time so if the tread is just barley off it can cause that.

Do you have the electric shift 4wd? If so, start by checking if there is power to the actuator on the transfer case.

ok you hear a noise in the dash and a noise under the truck. there will be two noises under the truck one puts the transfer case into gear the other locks the fromt axle. raise rear axle let truck idle in 4x4 look under truck is front shaft moveing if yes the 4x4 motor on the front axle is not working remove dissasemble clean lube reinstall. if the shaft does not turn do this same procedure on the elec motor on trans case..good luck you can replace your oil pump it may help vehicle
Looking at the motor from the front, it is behind carb and to the right of the distributor. It has 3 wires on it.

HOW DO I PUT A 1998 GMC JIMMY IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE?, DO I HAVE BE IN "PARK" OR CAN I CHANGE IT INTO 4 WHEEL DRIVE WHILE IM DRIVING?


You should be able to put in 4x4 while in drive less than 35mph. Mine had a switch to turn to engage or dis-engage.

2001 gmc jimmy keeps kicking into 4 wheel drive


the 4 wheel low light will usually only blink because the low gear is meant for a very slow speed and usually wont activate with the vehicle in motion i would have to say the sudden switch to 4x4 though would probably be a short in the wiring some place
