clutch problems

i have a 04 tj, 4" suspension, 35, 13,50's, d44's, 4.56 gears. love it to death, but i think i need a new clutch, when shes in neutral and i release the clutch it makes a scratchy sound like the cables rubbing or somethin, then when its out it sounds like somethins spinning constantly, i think it might be the throw out bearing, when i push it in the spinning sound goes away, is it ok to just fix that or do i need to replace everything in there? also, my 4wd low wont grab, it'll go in but when i get goin it slips out making a horible sound, are these two problems related???

When you did your life did you adjust your transfer case link? That could be your 4x4 prob

when you put it in 4 lo, do you put it in neutral? 2x on not adjusting the tcase shift linkages properly or not at all.

as far as when you are in neutral and not pressing on the clutch.. it sounds like something is running.. sort of like a bad rubbling bearing.. from what people have said here, i am led to believe its normal. Mine does it many other peoples rigs do it.. they say its just a noisy tranny.

i assume your transfer case is dropped? Go to your rig and look at the skid underneath the door that connects to the frame, does it go directly under the frame or is there a spacer in between? If yes, you should have a lowering bracket. Basically the reason for a lowering bracket is the tcase is mounted to the skid (the skid is mounted to the frame and the body is mounted to the frame.. one is bellow other is above). The way jeep designed the entire assembly, its held in place by 2 brackets, one end is mounted to the tcase while the other end is mounted to the body so doing a body lift you will rise the body from the frame so you need a bracket and same thing for when you lower the tcase.. you still need a lowering bracket...

reason why you need to lower the transfer case is with ~3-4" of lift you will get vibes unless you have a sye and cv kit (otherwise the driveshaft angle becomes too steep and you get vibrations in your driveline that eventually cause damage).

There is another (aftermarket) bracket that removes the bracket from the body and puts it on the tcase which eliminates the worry about drop brackets since now both brackets are on the same source and the distance between the body and the tcase dont matter.

What i'm saying is i believe you have a lowering bracket because you have a tcase drop kit.

04 manual and it makes a horrible noise in neutral? NO!


Welcome to the sound of the NV3550. That's just what it does. You get used to it.

As far as the 4wd shift. trips right. Trundle bolts probably in the wrong place. no big deal.

Only because I can't feel it for myself I'm gonna recommend that you let yourself get used to it. If it gets worse than you should fix it, if not I would accept it as part of the NV3550 and have fun out there.


Well, I'd have fun out there either way.

In the end it's your choice, but I'd hate to see it replaced and still be the exact same way.
