SOURCE: Steering Binding
Yes it could be an axle, It could also be the strut tower The strut bearing is on top of your strut and could be a problem I have seen it before and also the Axle do that, I don't think it would be the steering rack because I think it would do that either way you turn the steering wheel. I would stick with your first thought. Axle, sure sounds like an axle, The Clicking is usually the First indication of that. So I would take it out and check it or just replace it and I think that will solve your problem. If not get back to me and when I get in from the Shop I will check back here and see if you got it or not. Thanks Goldwinger and hope that helps you out some what. Bear001

It looks as though by doing a repair yourself ( I'm glad someone still does) you probably disrupted the sensor for those indicator lights, a quick trip to the dealers programmer and everything should be fine and dandy. Hope this helps :)

I maybe able to help. Did it make any noise when you tried (grinding or groan hum exe..) or just not work. If so the first thing I would do is to change the transfer case oil, check for metal in the oil, if there is that's really not good, take to shop. If no shinny metal replace with good quality oil, if it's red use atf if black or brown use 75W 90 and some. Auto trans fluid is recommended in cold climates or adding torque modifier check with parts store or dealer prefferably for what to use unless comfortable with choice then change front differentail fluid, with recommended fluid and torque modifier for limited slip differentails 2oz or alittle more. both holes fill till you can stick your finger in an just bairly bend it 1/8 or so inches and touch fluid. don't try to fill all the way if it comes out of the whole your filling clean up mess and allow as much to drain out as possible. If that happens you may have it vent through the vent and may see/ smell what every you put in it. If your comfortable with taking the diff cover off and replacing the gasket if needed (usually is) make sure its clean, don't use water or anything water based brake clean is good but check for metal and brownish or simial colored stuff in bottom of housing and of course metal. The teeth on the ring gear and pinion( ring gear is the small one in the back, ring gear is big and will be closest to you. if you have hunks of metal in there its smoked and replacement of ring gear and pinion is required (not cheap) there is alot more to look for but that should start you off in the right direction.

Yes you can, If you have taken the front drive shaft off, you can even still drive with the CV joint in place till you want to remove it. You may get some vibration around corners till you replace the CV joint or remove it totally.
But if your going to remove it, might as well wait till you have the replacement so you only do the job once. I had a Bad CV joint on a AWD Chevy van and did the same thing so i could still use it, and then replaced the CV joint when the weather got better.
Good luck and hope this helps.
