Well i dont know what i did but everytime i put it in 4wd all i hear is clicking and some clunking front wheels dont spin what so ever! could it be the transfer case or the axle it self?[16]

Im 17 dont have alot of money or the tools to sas it should i just sell the bronco or get another ttb axle or just tough it out in 2wd till i can get some cash and tools to sas it.

clicking and clunking... hubs locked in? are the shafts intact? mine doesnt go into 4l because the linkage came loose when i made my extension for the body lift.

are the front shafts turning inside the housing? you can see them from the back side. are the hubs locked? is the front drive shaft turning?

ok theres the switch to lock it into 4wheel then the silver piece around it with the bolts moves out a little when i pull on it and the other side moves back and firth a little to the sides and makes a click sound

so let me get this straight, when its jacked up, and you put it 4wd and go, the front tires dont spin but the shafts do spin. if so its ur hubs

can you see the 2 axle shafts spinning? if so, then it is your hubs.
