Question about Cars & Trucks
I did a tcase rebuild 3 mths ago for un related problems.That problem is fixed.U joints on front and rear drive shafts seem fine.Actuator switch seems fine.Truck does not give me 4wd problems in 4wd h even at highway speeds.If I try to to back up in 4 l as I did today there is considerable clunking coming from front diff and I can feel it through steering wheel,sounds like gears or splines not meshing of jumping out.Truck has 142k on it.
If you were on hard stand and not on gravel or loose surface then you will experience drive line torque wind up which stresses all loose parts in the entire drive train including the gear box and transfer case.. You may have worn "U" joints or cv joints in the king pin /ball joint area If there has been no service on the front drive axles and joints then the problem may be coming from there.

It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.

Your front hubs are automatic locking hubs, and the gears are hard nylon. These hubs break very easily, therefore causing you to lose your front wheel drive in 4 high, or 4 low. If you replace the hubs with "WARN (name brand) " manual locking hubs, you will never have the issue again. Of course, you will have to get out of the truck and manually lock the hubs, but they are metal gears, and much more durable. I've personally seen the issue several times, and changing the hubs has resolved the issue every time.
