It isn't AWD, it is A4WD. Two different animals. Do you have a limited slip rear end? That is the most common reason for the rear to grind. How many miles and has the rear ever been serviced?

After we fixed the U joints in the rear drive shaft, we found out all the noise was coming from the "FRONT DRIVE SHAFT" We are told we do not need the front drive shaft if we are not going to be using four wheel drive, so we are under the impression that we can take it out completely. It was also told to us the front drive shaft shouldn't turn unless we have it in four wheel drive. If anyone knows anything different please let me know!

These expeditions, what a pain. I JUST finished repairing the #3 spark plug blow out, the truck was awesome for about 3 days then all the sudden it doesnt feel like its driving right, at low driving speed (5-10 miles per hour) theres a knocking or clunking noise when I turn to the left it pops, so I pull the tires off and found the passenger side ball joint rod that goes to the steering box is loose, I followed the rod down to a connection with another joint and found it was low on grease so I greased it and its better but not tight like it should be, the problem is I cant tell which part is bad or do I know the names of the parts. I wish I could find a pictures of what Im dealing with, and why dont they put grease zerts on all the ball joints, is that another way for things to wear out and the consumer cant fix it them selfs? Thanks
