I have posted this before and still havent found out what is wrong with my 84 xjs 4 wheel drive. It seems to be making a clicking noise in both 4 lo and 4 hi. But when it is in 4 hi the clicking noise seems to speed up and when in lo it seems to slow down. It also makes more noise when braking. Ive changed all the u-joints and the cv joint in the front driveshaft. The front differential also looks fine and I can tell that it is locked in. I have the np 207 tcase and a 2.8l v6 . Im only 16 and do not have the money to just take it to the shop and Im really anxious to get this thing back on the trails.

Check if one of the front wheels is very hot after driving (compared to the others). Generally the only two things that will get it hot are wheel bearings and a non-releasing caliper. With the front end in the air, grab and wiggle the wheel, there should be NO movement. If there is, the bearing is letting go. You can also look for any bits of bright shiny metal around the steering knuckle, which will indicate if the bearing is self-destructing.

The unit bearings are expensive (~$125 apiece) so you want to be sure that's the problem before you replace them.

Good luck.

Steve
