Theoretically, yes you can. This is assuming the 4WD being engaged "all the time" is not from the hubs not unlocking.

Jeep grand Cherokee transmission tail shaft


is that joint right there a U-joint or CV? Anywho check for play at that joint, There may be a little at the slip yoke, where the tailshaft comes out of the transfer-case , but nowhere else should have any. If those joints are loose: replace U-joint While your under there you might as well check the front drive-shaft also.

check your front shaft end joints and if necessary front hub bearings. Ive also found that there often is some benefit to backing out the steering"stop" bolts on the lower control arms to limit turn radius a bit, preventing the joints from binding as easily.

yes,they should pull out with a little effort,they have an internal lock ring on the shaft,if they don't pull out you may have to use a pry bar between the inner joint and the case to pry it out.

Is it full time or part time 4 wheel drive? You should check the front driveshaft u-joints.

Need instruction on how to replace CV joints on 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee


remove front wheels , one or both at a time , remove caliper and rotor , remove cotter pin and nut on shaft , there are three or four bolts on back side of hub , remove the hub bearing and shaft should slide out , i would see if complete rebuilt assemblies are available , faster and easy this way

CV cplaced still clicking


seeing as it is a 4wd and you replaced all the problem areas( this wont cost you anything but 75W90 x 2 Quarts and RTV) take all but the top diff cover bolt out of the front of your jeep let all the fluid drain then take off the top, sift thru your gear oil that came out with a magnet and see what you collect. if not much visually inspect your carrier and spider gears and your gear and pinion. I can almost gaurantee your problem will be in either the spiders or your gear
