Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
Need help please.
The front drive shaft will not turn in either 4 low or 4high because it is in 4wd. You will need to disengage the hub locks to be able to turn the drive shaft in any ratio (2h-2l-4h -4l) as the diff will not allow the shaft to turn unless it can move the vehicle . The biggest mistake is to drive in 4wd on hard surfaces which results in a drive line torque wind up which creates extra load in the whole gearbox, transfer case and diffs and creates hard steering problems . For the hard pull to the right I would be checking for failing "U" joints or cv joints that are binding up.

Well, in the future it would be better to let us know what it is exactly that you drive, (cherokee, grand, jk, cj, ....)however, i'm guessing from the picture that you drive a grand. I dont know how long you have owned it or if you have put it in 4 low before, but you need to put the normal transmission in neutral before shifting to 4 low using the transfer case (the thing that gives you 4wheel drive via the lever) However, on your vehicle, if you have full time 4 wheel, i think you have the selec-trac transfer case and only have a switch. According to the Jeep website and i'm assuming your manual, you need to slow the vehicle to 2-3 miles per hour and then place it in neutral before attempting to shift to 4 low.

Try jacking up one side of the front and putting it on a jackstand. Then turn key on(but dont start it) and put it in 4hi. Try to spin the tire in the air. The drive shaft should not turn nor the wheel. If the wheel does then maybe the acuator is not moving in the axle. It worked when you pulled it out but it might be hanging up on something in the axle.

We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.
