SOURCE: Rear Axle Seal Replacement
remove rear tires, then remove brake calipers and rotors, then remove the 4 nuts (each side) that hold the axle shafts to the axle tube (located around the axle tube behind the backing plate) then using a slide hammer pull the axle shafts out, next using a die grinder and an air hammer get he retainer collar and the bearing off (without damaging the axle shaft) then remove the seal and the outer race which will still be in the housing. next put it all back together, make sure the plate with the studs is still on then slide the seal, bearing, then retainer on (all new parts) and using a press push them all the way back on. then is simple reassembly.

First thing to test is to see if the front driveshaft is getting engaged from the transfer case. With the vehicle in 4x4, and engine shut off, and in park, crawl under and try to turn the front driveshaft by hand. The driveshaft looks like a pipe that runs from the transfer case, located just behind the engine/transmission, to the front differential. If it rotates by hand, there is a problem with the transfer case. Some Jeeps have a vacuum actuator on the front diff that slides a collar inside the axle tube to engage it. I will watch for you findings, and you can leave me another message, and I will be happy to chat back with you on your findings.

If the boots on the c/v joints are intact, chances are they are good. Whining noises are generally associated with pump for the power steering. Likely if it's the original it is worn internally. Clicking and popping can be caused by a binding steering or suspension component. These may be separate issues or may be working in tandem to give the symptoms you posted. If the pump is worn and you have a binding condition, it may be difficult for the pump to produce sufficient pressure to overcome that so therefore it will whine. Make sure that the pump is full and the fluid is in good condition. Pumps generally wear out long before they actually have anything break inside but it can happen though so if you isolate the other noises aside from whining to the pump, change it.
Check all moving front end components for signs of binding, rust or excessive play. Pay special attention to the lower ball joints...they bear the most weight and pressure of all the front end parts yet by poor design have no provision for lube service. To check ball joints, place a jack under the axle and once you have some ground clearance put a bar under the tire and attempt to lift it while watching the joints. A small amount of play is normal but it should not be excessive. Also move the wheel assembly from side to side watching the joints and other linkage joints. Do that on both sides.
You should also watch the linkage and bushings while someone turns the steering wheel back and forth while running (in park) on the ground. Again, you are looking for any play (shifting) of bushings and linkage ends. Pay attention to the mount points on the steering box as well when doing that. If the mount bolts are loose or the chassis has split the box will move and make noise.
Though it's impossible to tell you what is causing your problem without the benefit of being there and looking at it, I have given you the best way to find it.
Bottom line is you need to look carefully to find the problem.
