replacing transfer case rear output shaft bearing
A year or so ago I had a bad vibration coming from my cv and slip joints on the rear driveshaft, so I put on a rebuilt unit. also i had the rearend rebuilt because it had water in it. The vibrations were gone but I never have gotten rid of the rumbling noise I hear when I come to a stop. I remember the mechanic saying that the vibration could cause the t-case seal to leak...so I'm assuming it probably also wore that output bearing out. I get a whirling noise back there now, but it has stayed the same volume for awhile. Anyway, the t-case leaks and I'm thinking about changing that bearing. I looked at the pics in the haynes and it looked like I could just take off that back housing and replace it without dropping the t-case. is it really that easy or do I have to take the whole unit apart?
