For the past 2 weeks I've been getting a very odd and irritating noise from the front end of me Jeep. The noise occurs only when under load and is present from slow speeds to higher speeds. I've checked my front axles and they look fine. I'm thinking the noise is comming from the back end of the front driveshaft, where it meets the transfer case.
The driveshaft seems to be position down in the rubber boot and is not centered. Does this sound familiar and can anyone please post a picture of the NV140 transfer case where the driveshaft meets it? I been hoping whatever is causing the noise would break and help me narrow my search down, this of course has not happend. Going to be putting it up in the air later today and a picture of the NV140 from a basic 05-07 WK 3.7 would def help esp showing the front driveshaft going into the transfer case.
This noise is not a little click here and there its a very obtrusive ratcheting sound, any help would go a long way. I've also looked at the front dif mounts and they look ok, tranny is shifting normally and turning the wheel doesn't change the noise, it happens in straight lines turns, etc. The only time you can not hear it is 60+ mph at highway speeds.
