Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2000 Jeep Wrangler 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 73000 miles
I have a 2000 Wrangler with a 4" Rough Country
lift and 1.5" lowering kit, 33X12.50 mudders.
When I start out there seems to be play in the rear diff or transfer case. Starts to spin then catches. Not much but enough to give me the creeps. Pulled the shaft and u joints are OK. Pulled the rear diff cover, no chips or fines but there is some play when turning the shaft by hand before it fully engages the gears. Is some play normal here?
The tcase has some play when in gear too when rotating by hand. Put it in neutral and all seems fine.
Can anybody give me some ideas here. I'm not sure where to head from here and my manual doesn't address this "end play" rotational issue.
Thanks 900 billion...not just a million
have the same problem?
