    Hey I know im new been reading some of the post and have learned alot. But Iv run into a problem with my 4wd chevy custom delux its a 1987 with a 350 4spd. It runs fine in 2wd but when you engage the 4wd it crow hops even while driving in a straight line I have never had a 4wd do this except while turning. If anybody has a idea whats happened please give me some ideas. Thanks

    I think some one in the past regeared the rear and did not do the front. DO NOT , I repeat DO NOT use 4WD until you get this corrected or you will grenade the t-case.

    It was working really good until this weekend then out of the blue we went down the field and it started hopping like crazy basicly dragging a rear wheel craziest thing I have ever seen.

    Check your back brakes, you may have one locked up
