Strange Noises in 4WD?

This weekend - we got about 5"-6" of snow on Long Island. After they salted and plowed the roads the Expressway was OK to drive highway speeds on. Well, I was in 4WD high and shifted from 4th to 5th and I heard a strange - grinding like noise coming from the front - the same thing happened on the 4th to 5th downshift. What is it - or what could it be? It only happens in 4WD and at higher speeds.

Could be a bad ujoint on your front shaft. If you can't tell if it's bad by visually inspecting it, swap the front driveshafts with your other rig.

Re: Strange Noises in 4WD?

I wonder if I need to add a driveline spacer to the front. I have a 4" (SPUA) lift and I added a 3/4" to the back........? Anyone????

The strange part is that it only does it at highway speeds. I will try to swap out the front shaft off the other zuk (damn I wish it wasn't so cold out).
