no prob. welcome to the forum

the front d shaft will spin when you're moving. but it is not under power at the tcase. you'd know if you were in 4 wd on dry pavement. in turns it would be fighting you and hopping and junk.

newer trucks and stuff the shaft doesn't always spin, so thats probably where the confusion came from. jeeps the shaft will alwasys spin due to the straight front axle, but it is not being powered, so don't worry.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
