You need to check the axle half shaft u joints. Sound like you may have one or both going out.

04 trailblazer front wheels grind after using 4wd?


You probably have a front drive splined disconnect assembly that has gone bad. This assembly engages the front differential when 4WD is selected. Below is a figure of the item, it is on the passenger side of the differential area.

Suggest you jack the truck up and support it on the frame. Then have someone get in and start and turn the wheel slowly in both directions. Also take a close look for rub signs in the wheel wells, if the tires are bigger than recommended, they could rub when turning tightly.

2002 GMC Z71 WHEN PUTTING INTO 4WD YOU CAN HEAR TRANSFER CASE LOCKING BUT FRONT TIRES WILL NOT TURN.


Hello tmaxx31190
Start by checking fuse #7 a 15amp fuse in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. This fuse is for the accuator motor on top of the left front axel tube. The accuator moter engages and
disengages the front axel for 4wd and 2wd. If the fuse is good, have someone operate the switch
and check to see if the accuator is working, you should be able to hear it engage or disengage.
If it's not working check the connections and for power at the accuator before possibly changing it.
If the accuator is working, it could be a problem with the shift fork inside the differential. Also, have
someone start the truck and engage the 4x4 then look to be sure the output shaft from transfer case to the front axel is turning. The safest way to do this is to have all 4 wheels up on jack stands.
Hope this is helpful.

98 Blazer 4WD front axel falling out of differential


I would dismantle the axle, fit new thrust bearings and anything else that is worn/damaged and reassemble/adjust clearance gaps to it, according to the service manual.

1998 Chevy S10 front axle will not engage when put into 4 wheel


Normal thing that happens as long as onone (worked) on it, is the vacume hose going to the engage sevevo under the battery box has fell of on either end or is brocken on the way there. Then the once or now leaky battery acid ate up this same servo. then the cable going to the front axel breaks sticks falls off or even someone needing one climbed under your truck while parked somewhere to get one to replace their brokeen one now you don't have one then theaxel engage arm or gearset is damaged
