View Full Version : Help! 95 xj 4wd

July 27th, 2017, 17:45
I just finished installing a 3.5 Rubicon express superflex kit with 33in tires on my 95 xj. I double checked everything was torqued down and want to take it for a spin. When I started to pull out of my driveway it started jerking and clunking. Not sure what to make of it as it ran perfectly fine before the lift.
Any help on what to look at would be appreciated.

Did you mess with the transfer case linkage at all? Sounds like it could be stuck in 4wd.

No I didn't touch the linkage, at least not purposefully, How would I check it it was stuck in 4wd?. I put transmission in neutral when and let it roll back into the driveway and still same thing.

Ok, if straight line causes the problems, then it's not 4wd.
Take a bunch of pictures of the work done and post them up. Particularly around the driveshafts. If they are binding, it could cause this too. Have you rolled it with the driveshafts off?

did you install a transfer case drop?

I'm going to try to get some pics uploaded tonight.
No I didn't do a transfer case drop. I ordered one yesterday should be here tomorrow to install.

Are the ears of the rear driveshaft touching at the t case? As in the 2 yokes making contact?
