    YOU MAY HAVE A TRANSFER CASE ISSUE OR POSSIBLY A U JOINT PROBELM. SERVICE YOUR TRANSFER CASE A(DRAIN AND FILL) AND LOOK FOR METAL IN FLUID. AT 100K IS OVERDUE ANYWAY.

    thanks i will do that and re post. i did have 3 tranny/diff pros drive it and they said nothing is wrong with t case. another guy told me the richmond gear set i installed @ 8000th backlash in rear diff could be the prob cause they are noisey gears by nature. pinon depth is mint off center line new aubern carrier and ALL bearings also.
