i was on the freeway yesterday when my car started making a low pitched vibrating noise.....so i slowed to about 30 mph then i heard sort of a bang, followed by a ****load of clunks
i pull over on the shoulder and find a trail of large bearings, i look under my car and my trasnfer case is smoking and the area around it is covered in oil.....i drive it home going about 20 mph, clunking all the way
anyway i get home and inspect the undercarriage, my first thoughts(that my transfer case had exploded) were subdued.....my t-case is intact
my front drive shaft has a ****load of play on the t-case end of it.....and im mostly sure thats where the clunking came from......the bearings are between half an inch and 3/4 inch
edit: i recently had my driveshaft remanufactured because one of the seals was messed up(something along those lines)
I am not one to be changing lanes at 70 mph on a lifted truck on 33's, but since I am in Miami, I have to be prepared for the continuous influx of new drivers whose previous ride was a bicycle with wooden wheels.
