U Joints are cheap, like 20 bucks a piece and there are 4 of them. Not sure on the labor as I changed them myself.

Ibuildembig Yeah that's what I was thinking...problem is, nothing changes other than the rotation speed of the shaft when going from high to low

teddywetts I had someone say it could be the u joints. I just dont understand how it only does that in 4 high..

1991 Wrangler YJ Renegade I also have a 4wd hi question... mine also makes a noise... like a rolling rattling noise while I'm driving... sorry to hijack your thread! but this has me worried now that I think about it... I don't know if it does it in 4Lo
09-02-2010 02:23 PM
teddywetts Kind of a rubbing sound... like i thought it was something in my tires at first, but it didnt do it in 2wd. Im thinking it might be in my diff?? Hard to say... it drove fine despite the noise..
09-02-2010 02:14 PM
Ibuildembig What kinda noise? Pop? Boom? Screech? Eeek? Squeak? Scratch?
09-02-2010 02:09 PM

weird front end noise in 4wd high

Hey guys,

I am noticing a weird noise in my front end when im in 4wd high. it doesnt make the noise in 2wd. and i dont think it makes it in 4 lo. I notice it when i hit the gas. It isnt real loud, but just enough to notice. any ideas what it could be?
