bind in 4wd

First off I just installed a Tom woods rear cv shaft not too long ago and I took off my 2inch shackle lift and added a leaf to the springs. My jeep is SOA. I took out my rear shims cuz I thought I wouldn't need them because I went back to stock height shackles. So today I go wheelin and under heavy load while the hubs are locked in either 2wd, 4hi or low I get a bind that sounds like its coming from right under me. I suspect it to be my CV joint binding up. Anyways do i need to put my shims back in? Do you think this is the problem? My angle does look a little off but not too much, by the way it is a 9inch rear. Thanks for any help!

Re: bind in 4wd

Do you have anything in place to prevent axle wrap? If not it might look fine sitting on the ground, but when you press on the skinny pedal it'll bind.

Re: bind in 4wd

Is your pinion pointing up at your t-case or is it sitting level?

Re: bind in 4wd

1. There's one way to find out...[*] Block the wheels.[*] Put the Jeep in 4WD[*] Turn off the engine.[*] Drop the rear driveline[*] Restart the engine[*] Attempt to get out of 4WD
2. If the problem continues,
3. It's not the driveshaft,
4. If it does...
5. It looks like there is indeed a bind.

Re: bind in 4wd

I just put in the shims today tall side on the back and it looks better, however i was also looking at my driveshaft and when I move from side to side the transfer case moves with it! Is this normal or am I pretty much screwed?

Transfer case should be bolted to the tranny. Tranny should be bolted to the cross member.

Transfer case shouldn't be moving much at all.
