Jeep ZJ Front Noise
Hi Guys
I have a 1998 ZJ Orvis, it has the NP249 quadra trac transfer case and is running with detroit lockers front and rear, last week when driving it started making a rubbing/catching type noise from the front, when steering and driving straight, it does it in both hi and low ratio. I removed the front propshaft and the noise stopped, I jacked the front wheels up and span them without the prop, checked for play in bearings etc, all was ok,
I read on Jeep forum that it may be the transfer box drive chain, so I stripped the box to check, but all looked and felt ok there too. has anybody got any idears or had the same problem????
Please help!!

Re: Jeep ZJ Front Noise
you will have that as lng as there is a locker in the front unless you replace the hub with manual hubs.
