Chasing noise for a year now.
I have a 2002 TJ with 6 1/2 lift. Quick story to the prob. Last winter I had a truck slide threw an intercetion on ice and I was in 2wd, I hit the gas to get out of the way and spun, yanked the lever into 4x4 while on gas ( yea I know ) and got out of the way before he hit the bank beside me. 2 weeks later my axle backed out on me. Replaced rear axles and bearings. Road test, all good for about an hour and out of know where a loud bearing noise started. Since then I have replaced the trans cause the shifter was shaking and noise is there in 3rd,4th and 5th. Noise still there. Replaced trans case, noise still there. Noise is only there in 3,4,and 5th, all driveline has been replaced except fron rear and u joints. Noise sounds like a loud Pinion bearing and goes away when you let off gas. HELP!!!!!!!!
Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.
Everything is new in the rear. Both axles were replaced when one snapped on me driving down the road a couple days after I dumped it into 4x4. I have driven it with rear shaft out and noise is still there. Im going to pull the front shaft in alittle bit. We have electronic ears at the shop I work at that I have connected to the rear, trans, and t-case and as you drive you have a head set on and click to each hook up and listen for noise. Onlt place the noise comes from is the trans and loud, the trans was the first thing replaced and no change.
Just took front shaft out, noise still there. So it has been driven in 2x4 with front shaft in and out, 4x4 with rear shaft in and out, new trans, new trans case, rebuilt rears. Nothing fixed it.
