Re: HELP

Was it sitting long?

Could have a seized caliper, would couse it to go slow and pull. Does it only pull in 4wd, what about 2wd?

You shouldn't be using 4wd on pavement anyway!!

Re: HELP

Possibly only one hub is locked in and spinning?

Re: HELP

You should NEVER drive in 4WD on dry paved surfaces as you could seriously damage your drivetrain. With that said, are you sure both of your front hubs are locked and functioning properly? Could be only one of your front wheels is getting power since you say it only happens in 4WD.

Re: HELP

Leave it in 4wd, when it is pulling, push in the clutch.
Still pulling?
Check hubs.
Jack up front end
With hubs locked in , spin one front tire.
Does the other tire move also?
Yes?--Hubs are prob. ok
No?--Hub might be bad--Axle might be broken--Side gear in diff might be broken.
