There are four types of driveshafts used:

  • One-piece rear driveshaft with two U-joints and a front slip yoke.
  • Two-piece rear driveshaft with three U-joints, a front coupling shaft, a center bearing and a rear slip yoke.
  • Three-piece rear driveshaft with four U-Joints, two center bearings and a rear slip yoke.
  • One-piece front driveshaft with two U-joints and a slip yoke.
The front driveshaft is connected to the transfer case and to the front axle. Universal joints are used at both ends of the driveshaft to allow for angular motions. Slip yokes are used to allow for any changes to the length of the driveshaft. The engine torque enters the axle through the drive pinion, which rotates the ring gear. The ring gear is mounted to the differential case, which contains the gears that transmit power to the rear axle shafts or front halfshafts. These shafts rotate the drive wheels.

: The axle identification tag is the official service identifier. Do not damage the tag. Always reinstall the tag after removing it for axle inspection/repair.
The axle identification tag identifies a particular axle design, a specific ratio, and if it is a conventional or limited slip (Traction-Lok®) type. In addition, the plant code will not change as long as that particular axle assembly never undergoes an external design change. If, however, an internal design change takes place during the production life of the axle and that internal change affects parts interchangeability, a dash and numerical suffix is added to the plant code. This means that as an assembly both axles are interchangeable; however, internally they are different. Therefore, each requires different internal parts at the time of repair.

What are names of bearings and seals to fix loose driveshaft? Right where the drive shaft yoke goes in transfer case it is leaking from what was a seal. Shaft can be moved up and down almost 1/4"


IF you can move the shaft that much, no seal is gonna stop the leak. The bearing would have to be shrapnel to cause that much movement.

2001 chevy blazer transfer case removal


How to Remove a Chevy Blazer Rear Transfer Case The transfer case on a Chevrolet Blazer is underneath the vehicle, mounted to the rear of the transmission. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case takes power generated by the engine and channeled through the transmission and directs it to the front and rear drive axles. Over time, the gears and bearings inside the transfer case can wear and the transfer case must be rebuilt. The transfer case on this vehicle must be removed before it can be serviced.
Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Socket set
  • Masking tape
  • Marker
  • Needle-nose pliers
Hide Instructions
  1. Removing the Driveshafts
    • 1 Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • 2 Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
  • 3 Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
  • 4 Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
  • 5 Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
  • Removing the Transfer Case
    • 6 Label and disconnect the electrical wires and vacuum lines connected to the transfer case. Use masking tape and a marker.
    • 7 Remove the transfer case shifter rod. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the clip that connects the shifter rod to the transfer case. Slide the rod away from the transfer case.
    • 8 Position a floor jack underneath the transfer case. Raise it enough to take the weight of the transfer case off the transmission.
    • 9 Remove the bolts that connect the transfer case to the transmission using a socket or wrench.
    • 10 Slide the transfer case rearward to disengage it from the transfer case. Lower the floor jack, and remove the transfer case from the vehicle

    How do I remove the front driveshaft on a 2003 TrailBlazer?


    there are two types, one will use a slide type joint rubber insul, and will have small bolts holding it to transfer case. the other type will have no bolts and pops in to transfer case, to remove this type you use a small pry bar and pop it out like a cv axle out of transmission, it uses a c clip to lock itself in, wedge pry between transfer case and joint and give a pull.

    Hello i have a 1993 ford f350 4x4 with the 7.3L non turbo diesel and 5 speed manual transmission. my front driveshaft just gave out on me at this wierd looking end where it meets the transfer case. what is...


    I work in an automotive recycling yard. I can only think of either the yolk, or the universal (u) joint. There's usually a slip yolk in the middle of the shaft to compensate for the front end travel (up and down). In any event, you can Google images to clarify what part you're referring to. You can also look for the shaft, or front yolk near you by searching Car-Part.com. If it's just the universal joint and the yolk isn't damaged, you can replace just the u-joint. I hope I've helped. If so please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial. There's only just so much information I can offer without direct communication. Thank you for using Fixya.

    When i try to engage my 4wheel drive all i get is a grinding noise and it wont work, any ideas? was told it could be the actuator switch or a bad cv joint. im a girl so I know nothing but i live in the...


    more than likely it is the actuator. this can be found on the transfer case with wires going to it.
    the transfer case can be found by following the driveshaft that comes off of the front axel the thing it connects to is the transfer case. they are for the most part just a couple of bolts to remove it and the new one should go right back in and bolt up. hope this helps.

    Front hubs not engaging or disengaging clicking


    Is the front driveshaft turning but the wheels are not? or is the noise coming from the transfer case and the front driveshaft is stationary. If the driveshaft is not turning the problem is inside the transfer case. If the driveshaft turns, remove the front differential cover and make sure the gears are not damaged. Before doing that though, If the boots on the axles are torn, chances are that the c/v joints (one or both) have failed. The front diff is an "open type" which means that the wheel with the least amount of traction will receive all the power. If a joint fails there is no "traction": at that wheel so the opposite one will not turn as well. You will see the axle turning but the wheel will remain stationary. If joint has failed, most times it's faster and easier (and not much more $ to buy a complete rebuilt axle). Chilton or haynes manual outlines r&r...not terribly difficult job but if you have any questions about any of it just ask!

    How Does Quadra Drive Work?


    Under normal driving conditions, the system operates conventionally, and the majority of available torque is applied to the rear wheels. However, when front-to-rear wheel speed variations exist, the progressive differential transfers torque to the axle with the better traction, thus minimizing wheel spin and maximizing control.
    The key to this design is a progressive coupling Progressive Coupling , which is supplied with pressurized oil by a gerotor style pump. The pump rotor and case are driven by the front and rear driveshafts respectively, and deliver pressurized oil flow to the coupling in proportion to their speed difference. The progressive coupling contains a multi-disc clutch pack that is alternately splined to the front and rear driveshafts, and controls torque variation between the front and rear driveshafts as dictated by the pump.
    A set of orifices and valves control the speed-differential starting point and rate of torque transfer rise in the clutch. This allows the system to disregard the normal speed differences between axles that result from variations in front-to-rear loading and typical cornering.
    Transfer case operating ranges are selected with a floor mounted shift lever. The shift lever is connected to the transfer case range lever by an adjustable cable. Range positions are marked on the shifter bezel plate
