About 5months ago or so my rear driveshaft came loose and it dropped off the rear. It wacked around a few times. I reinstalled the drive shaft and all and a few weeks later I noticed that the tcase was leaking. I also noticed that the drive shaft boot was missing.
I had my truck in for service for something else and I had them replace the seal and boot. A few days after I got the jeep back I was going down the highway and the Boot broke loose, and disappeared. When I stopped, the tcase was leaking fluid again.
I took it back to get it replaced (for free) and last night it did the same thing.
I have a few questions. Does the boot keep the tcase from leaking? I can deal with not having the boot but its leaking and I need to figure this out. A buddy has told me that the "cone" on the tcase has a bushing inside it and if the bushing is worn then the driveshaft is wobbling around enough to kill the new seal.. Does anybody have any suggestions?
I was told that I can replace the whole piece (cone, seal, bushing) at once and I should be ok. I am just trying to see if anybody knows anything about it.
Its a 97, 4cyl, 5spd.
