HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD IT?

MODIFIED IN ANY WAY (OTHER THAN FACTORY)?

HAS IT OPERATED IN 4WD, JUST FINE, IN THE PAST, UNDER THE 'ZACT SAME CONDITIONS?

ARE YOU ON TERRAIN OR ARE YOU ON THE ASPHALT WHEN DOING THIS?

Thanks for your reply.

I've had the car about 6 months. It's turbo, has diff lockers and a few other things. Car has been working great in 4wd as I live off road it had been getting a lot of use. Just seems weird that it works fine when not engaged in 4wd.

I live across a river crossing and have done it numerous times. After I went across this time is when I noticed the issue. Please help.

Cheers

BEFORE YOU START TEARING INTO STUFF

LET'S DO SIMPLE STUFF 1st

LIKE INSURING TIRE PRESSURE IS CONSISTENT ALL THE WAY AROUND!

MAYBE BARELY PICK 'EM UP OFF OF THE DRIVEWAY AND SPIN 'EM TO SEE IF THE TIRE DRAGS ON THE DRIVEWAY IN CERTAIN SPOTS (LOOKING FOR "OUT OF ROUNDNESS-REASON FOR BARELY PICKING THEM UP (SINCE YOU SAID 2WD SEEMS FINE - REALLY CHECK OUT THE FRONT TIRES WELL)

MAYBE YOU HAVE? CRAWLED UNDER THERE AND LOOKED FOR ABNORMALITIES IN THE DRIVE SHAFTS (BENT/ COMING LOOSE OUT OF A DIFF OR U-JOINT BOLTS LOOSE

I'VE SEEN BARBED WIRE WRAPPED UP IN DRIVE SHAFTS, HECK, EVEN FOUND A PIC ON THE NET WITH A MATTRESS WOUND UPON ONE! (SEE LAST PIC!

CHECK THE U-JOINTS FOR WEAR - I'M INCLUDING SOME CRAPPY PICS I MADE OF MY '46 WILLYS (HOPE YOU CAN READ/ UNDERSTAND 'EM)

YOUR TURN
