Rezeppa - rezeppa

About a month or so ago I noticed a humming from underneath while going down the road. When I let off the gas, the noise went away. Thinking it was probably the rezeppa(s) on the front d/s I went and ordered rebuild kits for both ends. Haven't had time to install yet, but now I'm getting a grinding/rotational/metal on metal sound. Is this the "normal" progression of the rezeppa/rezeppa d/s; going from humming to grinding/metal sound? I'll be rebuilding it tomorrow.

My WJ was making a lot of noise going down the road and grinding on tight turns (like in parking lots). I checked it out and my CV boots were ripped causing the joits to be full of ***** and getting rusty. I replaced the CV Axles and the Jeep is quiet and smooth again.

Replaced both ends of the front d/s with new kits. No more grinding, etc. The end that connects to the transfer case was totally shot. The rubber boot had failed and inside was pretty rusty.
