Front Axle disconnect problems - Can I lock it in place?
I have a 91 XJ with the front axle that includes the vacuum disconnect. I'm starting to have some problems with it engaging and disengaging properly and I'd like to just eliminate it by locking it in the engaged position.
First, is this a good idea? Can I expect any repercussions from this when I drive the vehicle on the street? Will it hurt my gas mileage?
How about the Transfer case? If I lock this up, is it still okay to shift from 2 Hi to 4 Hi while rolling? Or will I grind gears now?
Lastly,.. what is the best way to lock it in place?
Thanks for your help!
