Another weird YJ problem...

Hey guys, a few months ago I had a weird intermittent fuel leak on my 95 YJ 2.5L that you help me with. Now it has something different going on.

At speeds up to 25mph in 2wd, there is a rhythmic, slow clicking sound at the front right wheel. At about 25mph it goes away. Just for fun, I put it in 4wd at about 20mph and the sound immediately went away, then came back when I went back to 2wd. Any ideas? It almost sounds like a rock is stuck somewhere.

My guess. Something with your CAD. That's the only thing that should change from 2wd to 4wd.

The bearings seals / hub do not change. There the same regardless.

On a side note I just had this problem. It was my brake dragging. Doubt it's your problem. But maybe

If that's the problem, would disconnecting the vacuum line and putting a clip on it fix the problem? I remember a mod that did away with the vacuum line to lock the front.

Doubt it. Unless the vacuum diaphragm in there is screwed up and not moving the collar all there way back. You could take the cover off and look in there. Easy enough to do.

Make sure its making the sound park it pull the 4 bolts off pull it off straight back and look to see where the collar is. If its kind of half way between the shafts there is your problem. If not. I don't Know. lol

P.S. It's called a posi lock. Uses a cable to activate the 4WD. I wouldn't do it unless you need find out you need to. If you do I say go for it. Its great.
