HELP!!: I NEED SERIOUS IFS HELP!!

I have a 88 Chevy unfortunately with IFS. I just finished installing a Skyjacker 2.5" lift along with new upper and lower ball joints, brake rotors, and calipers. Here is my problem: when i spin the passenger side tire, it is turning the front driveshaft along with it. The driver side however spins freely. I took it out on the road for a test drive, and I could hear a clicking noise each time the tire made a rotation. This one is over my head, so I would appreciate any help.

Have you checked the fluid in the front diff? I had a case on an s-10 where it was low and it didn't disengage all the way when you took it out of 4wheel. It also had a noise.

Check the angle of the shaft, as well as the ball joints. Sounds like they might be loose, or ungreased. Could also be a CV problem. Does it get louder under breaking? Does it pulse the truck (Meaning can you physically feel it?) Good luck!!

This might sound dumb, but have you driven in reverse while in 2wd after shifting from 4wd? Even if the t-case is disengaged, the hubs need to be reversed out of the lock position.

Also, have you checked that your actuator is releasing? Ther might be a wiring problem that is not allowing your hubs to disengage.

By the way, I am pretty sure that your problem in in your hubs. I have had this problem, but it has gone away on its own after taking the aforementioned steps.

I'm with desert chevy, sounds like one of your hubs is locked and the other one isn't.

The GM IFS systems don't have hubs.
