Suzuki samurai started shuttering under load.(driving hwy speeds) Seemingly from the transfer case, the stick vibrates. Could a short drive in L4 with the hubs in "Free" be the reason?

Check the universal joints in the jackshaft between the gearbox and the transfer case.
Driving a short distance in 4low with hubs unlocked shouldn't do any harm.

Either the linkage is broken or the transfer case has broken. Visually inspect the linkage. If it is fine then there is a good chance its the T-case.

If it has been lifted the Pitman arm needs to be adjusted to recenter the steering.

With the engine off, the trans in gear and the transfer case in 4 Hi or Low you should not be able to rotate the front drive shaft. If this is the case it sounds like a hub problem. Make sure the hubs are engaged. If so the hubs could be rusted and need cleaning to work freely.

I would be more inclined to look at the U-joints at either end of the drive line. Bent tubes usually cause vibration at speed. Jack up both rear wheels and put gearbox in neutral. Spin the wheels by hand and observe the drive line for being bent as it turns. A rare problem which allows the rear axle to twist under acceleration might be possible.

88 Suzuki samurai 4x4 will not engage.


The shifter sheet is worn out or not even there (its rubber) from multiple uses. It eventually decades.

Tons of Samurai enthusiast retailers carry them. Lowrangeoffroad, Petroworks, Trail Tough, and more.

They also carry the one for the tranny shifter.
