hi all, need info on how to troubleshoot the vacuum actuator on the front axle of my 88 cherokee. have plenty of vacuum but it changes from one line to another erratically. just got this vehicle on the road, and with my job i drive 140 miles on north dakota country roads. with winter coming having good reliable 4x4 is a must. it looks like the lines go all the way back to the transfer case. i am guessing that is where the trouble is. am i better off changing over to a manual cable system ?it does not seem like it would be that hard to modify mine rather than spend the money on a kit. a throttle cable, spring and some nuts and washers would about do it. anyway i bought this cherokee for $200 with a bad engine and had a rolled over one on hand with a good motor that i paid $150 for. it has a 4.0l with around 130k on it. works great for me. i still have an 83 cherokee with a 2.8 that has been sitting a while, not very impressive.

If you want reliable, besides swapping to a non-disconnect axle or solid pass. side shaft, the posi-lock is the only way to go. >Homemade Posi-lock<
I did this to my 88 XJ. It works great and couldn't be easier to install.
