The squeak from hell

Finally got the bolts out from a previous thread and removed passenger seat which I thought was the culprit. Still have this squeak that happens usually in 1st 2nd and 3rd gear. When I hit the gas and let off it squeaks like a sob. So annoying. Please help.


If it aint broke dont Fix it.

Looks like you're talking about your transfer case shifter linkage. Depending on your budget I'd recommend a cable shifter from novak.

Otherwise, spray some white lithium grease on it. It'll probably come back. Might be able to source a better condition factory used linkage from Davey's Jeeps.

I'm assuming you've checked your transmission mount and it's good

If you repair the OEM linkage, remove it and use a vice to work on it. Work the block loose and clean up the shaft, then apply a film of grease. Straighten everything out and use a heat gun to press in new plastic bushings (order on Amazon or they can be found in the red card "Help" section at most parts stores). The factory linkage works well when it is not damaged or worn. The cable shifters are great but they are pricey too.

Make sure it isn't the front or rear centering yokes going bad. They tend to make sounds at lower rpms - "angry sparrows" is the sound name given to it. You don't feel them at first. In higher rpms the sound gets hidden by the engine and tires. If they do fail, it can/will be catastrophic as they vibrate and break.

The bushing and bellows kit was what I was referring to. They are about $12. That rod you linked to is very similar to the existing one. You probably only need to freshen up yours with some sandpaper and straighten it out. Use a heat gun and be gentle on the bushings when reassembling. They will split/crack if you don't. I found pressing them back together in the vice worked great. The new ones aren't as tough as the original OEM bushings.

I'm Confused I boughtPart #14041 but it doesn't include the big ball bearing bushing that 5014148AA has. With 5014148AA I do not get what the boot is for or any of the other parts except the silver bushing. (Mines Torn to Pieces)

So I assume one of those white ones fit on that sucker, got the other part coming as the bearing was gone in the silver bushing. I melted out the bushings with a torch because they were a pain in my ***. Hoping I can put new bushings in all the holes.

This is the TSB that the 5014148AA kit was for. Looks like the boot is to protect the bronze bushing on the body side.
