is your 4wd working or does it seem like it is popping out if so look at the CAD. If your 4wd is working look at the u-joints on your front axle and drive shaft.

to check the u joints you can do it on the drive shaft with it on the ground the ones on the front axle it would probably be easier to raise a wheel and rotate it back and forth and make sure it is all tight. To test if your 4wd is working I dont know I was having trouble with mine slipping out because of the CAD it was making a loud pop but it only happened under a load and then I could just tell the 4wd was not working.
