It's when I stop. It's like someone hits me in the rear.

Its called stop bump. U need to take off the rear drive shaft and grease the splines from the transfercase to the driveshaft. I did it on mine, very simple. However it came back in about 3 months and i just havent done it again yet. Also, ive heard if you use silicone grease it s supposed to last longer.

I dont think its possible unless u find a rear driveshaft that fits veryvtightly with your transfercase splines, or vice versa. Like i said the silicone greasemis supposed to last mich much longer
