thanks Tim, that's exactly what I was afraid of... I guess it's time to go under and break a few more bolts!
can I get away with replacing it without completely removing the tranny/xfer case? or do I need to put the whole assembly on the bench?

What, that it is was the old lady? Hate to break it to ya, but it ain't that uncommon. If the whinning is intermittent, you could always whack it a couple of times with a wrench, that usually makes it stop if only temporarily. Usually, once they start whinning all the time, you got to replace the whole unit. I've done it a few times myself.
Other than that, you can replace the clutch stuff with the tranny in, put it's a little tight. A lift helps.
