89 Front Axle

I am trying to find out what the small round part in my front axle is called. It has vacume hoses hooked up to it. Mine is rotted out and I wanted to replace it. I assume it has to do with the 4 wheel drive.

That would be called a front axle vacuum actuator and yes it's for the 4 wheel drive. It locks your front axle in.

They are a pain and can be the source of much heart ache. See this thread... http://www.wranglerforum.com/f8/4wd-...xle-91556.html for a fix.
