Or we have a transfer case problem. Just find it weird that it only does this while turning. If it was ring and pinion or bearings or anything else for that matter. “You’d think” it’d do this no matter what
If the driveshaft boot is torn check the CV joint at the end to see if the rubber boot is also torn if it is and the grease is gone you will need to replace the CV or the whole driveshaft .Also if the rubber cover on the shaft is torn it might be rubbing on the exhaust pipe this is common on jeeps that are liftedHey boys and girls need some help here. I have an almost plastic rubbing sound coming from my front axel when I’m 4hi tans turning. Now I just got the Jeep has been about 3 weeks took it off road first week I got it had it in 4 hi and didn’t make the plastic rubbing chirping sound. But does it on concrete. Only reason testing on concrete because I seen the drive shaft slip boot is torn and so is the cv boot. U joints are centered and in place. No clunking while turning and no vibrations.
is this a new thing? Lol thanks in advance.
I dunno... you would think if it was an axle shaft issue of any kind one of the first things you would see is oil out of the tube ends.well first thing that comes to mind is being it started right after you installed new ball joints is that the when the axle shaft was put back one of the little plastic centering rings got messed up and pushed thru the seal or something like that. It really does not sound like metal on metal to me but my ears are old and my brain is slow. one easy way to eliminate the T/C and drive shaft is to pull the front driveshaft. That would be probably quicker than driving to find an old service road and will do less damage to whatever is the issue.
Can you snap a quick picture of where they were making contact? OCD in me needs to see something shiny for closure.Sorry boys! I forgot! We’ve came to the conclusion that it was the slip boot hitting the heat shield going to get a new drive shaft maybe the Adams drive shaft for buy the drop brackets for the exhaust to lower it some. Took diff cover off all was good in there thanks god!
