Frontend shakes when pt 4x4 engaged

Check the U-joints in the front driveshaft for play. Any side to side or up and down movement is unacceptable. Also check the joints at the front wheels. If they check out good, then jack up one front wheel at a time and check for play in the ball joints. Grab the tire at 12 and 6 o'clock and try to move it in and out. If it moves ball joints need to be done. Dlo the same at 3 and 9 o'clock to check the tie rod ends. any movement means they will need replacing.

If you take it off-roading you may want to check the driveshaft and axles for out of round. with the front end off the ground, hold a flat bar next to the axle or shaft and spin it. If the flat bar moves, there is a good chance the axle or driveshaft is bent and that could also give you a shake. Hope this helps.

How do you remove the front drive shaft in a 1995 jeep grand cherokee limited

Use white paint, chalk or a scribe to mark the relationship of the front U joint to the front diferential pinion yoke. Mark the relationship of the rear U joint flange to the transfer case companion flange. Unbolt the front end of the drive shaft from the pinion yoke and the rear end from the transfer case companion flange and remove the drive shaft from the vehicle.
hope thei info helps.

Rear end has wobble and vibration, there is a clunking sound when i put it in gear

Check your driveshaft joints for excessive play. If it's bad enough to clunk into gear, usually if you have someone watch from the side underneath you can see the one that is worn when you go from drive to reverse. (do not lay in the path of the wheels when doing that ) Another way of checking is with both rear wheels safely supported (on flat ground) and the trans in neutral to unload the driveline...then try to move the driveshaft by hand. When replacing the bad joint, check the opposite end as well for any binding or play.

I need to replace the drive shaft

One the spline end there will be a keyway type spline one that is a different size than the rest. Make sure that is lined up before anything. Once you have the shave mostly in place i normally put the U-Joint in place and then pull or push the middle of the driveshaft to make both ends line up. Once you have all the slack out of the driveshaft and U-Joint tighten the bolts and make sure your fluid is full.

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.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee with fulltime 4wd and only turns rear!

You know for a fact no power is being sent to the front axle? This transfer case only sends power to the front axle when the rear axle is slipping. Are there any unusual noises in the front axle?

If it is the transfer case, replacing it is not too big of a deal. If you are the least bit confident of your abilities, then you can do it yourself. I believe you have the NP242 transfer case, but I could be wrong. There will be a tag on the back side of the case, facing the rear axle, to the left of the drive shaft. On that tag, it will tell you which case you have. You can either have yours rebuilt, or buy a replacement either new or used.

To remove the t-case, first drain the fluid. Next remove the front driveshaft by removing the four bolts holding the u-joint in place. Then remove the rear drive shaft by doing the same as the front driveshaft, only this time it's at the rear differential. Once the drive shaft is free, support the full weight of the driveshaft, not that heavy, and pull it out of the t-case and set aside. Disconnect the shifter linkage and wiring harness. Next, remove the bolts that connect the t-case to the t-case cross member. Lift slightly and support the tranny/t-case assembly and remove the cross member. The t-case isn't very heavy, but you don't want it falling on your head, so remember to support it as you remove the bolts that connect it to the rear of the tranny. Once you bring it out from under the Jeep, and it's rebuilt or you have another unit to replace it, installation is the reverse of removal. Just remember to refill the t-case with the proper fluid.

  1. Pull outward on the front wheel knuckle (3K185). Carefully pull the front wheel driveshaft and joint from the front wheel knuckle and position it aside.

  1. NOTE: Removal of the LH front wheel driveshaft and joint (3B437) requires removal of the transmission support crossmember (6A023) to allow access with a pry bar. If the LH front wheel driveshaft and joint is being removed, continue with step 11. If the RH front wheel driveshaft and joint is being removed, continue with step 15.

If the gears become misaligned, the differential will have to be removed from the transaxle to align the gears.
    If both front wheel driveshaft and joints were removed, install Transaxle Plugs T88C-7025-AH in the differential side gears.
  1. Remove and discard the driveshaft bearing retainer circlip (3Z498).

I have a whining noise in the front axle. and the driveshaft wiggles when in drive.

Check the end joints, the cardan joint and the slip joint to find what's loose.

When you get under the driverside of the vehicle you will see the front driveshaft coming from the transmission to the front differential. At the two ends there will be I think 6, 8mm bolts. 12 total. Loosen them all up. To get to them by rotating the driveshaft you'll have to put the front end of the vehicle on jackstands and put the transmission in nuetral. Remimber to have the parking brake on. Once loose hit the ends of the shaft with a rubber mallet( not a steel hammer). Sometimes corrosion builds up in the joint and can make it a pain to break free. Once the joints are loose, remove the screws you loosened earlier and the shaft should come out. Good Luck
