4x4 noises

When I engage the 4x4 it makes snapping noises and spits out gear oil over the axle on the drivers side. The 4x4 still works. Any ideas on what teh prob might be.
Thanx,

Jason Duffy

dartboy,
is the oil on the front or rear axle ? is the oil coming from the end of the axle or the yoke where the drive shaft is ? the oil is probably a seal and the snapping could be an axle hub bearing ,an axle U-joint or a U-joint on the front driveshaft gone bad . but if it has a locker ,( like a powertrax or lockright ) the snapping is normal .

Sorry should have been a little mer clear. The oil is on the front axle. All puddled on the end of the axle where it connects to the wheel. It is coming out hard enough that it is squirting on the tire. I never thought to check the front universals, just changed the rear ones.
