Transfer case noise

In awd Clunking noise when shifting it in and out of drive/reverse Noise sounds like an intermittent screeching rotational sound. It doesn't make the sound in 4 lo?
Transfer case or transfer case motor?

Visually check the propeller shaft from the TC to the front Differential if you have not already.

Clunking when shifting P-D/R and D-N/R is usually the front differential bushings.
Nothing is turning at that point until you take your foot off the brake.

Does that explain the screaching noise that is coming directly from the transfer case. This was while it was up in the air, all tires spinning in drive.

Don’t know, but clunking when shifting in and out of gear is certainly front differential bushings.

How’s the transfer case fluid color/level if you’re sure the noise is coming from there ? How are the input and output shafts ? Prop shaft?

If you fill out your profile , we’ll at least know what engine/drive system you have.

Replaced the front axle mounts. That helped, but I still have rotational noise while driving, coming from the front end. Cv boots looked good. Other than maybe the tires being out of balance, I'm at a loss.

Check the diff fluid level? Possibly the fluid is low and bearings are dry when first starting out?
