    I pulled my drive shaft the other day and noticed that the splined rear output shaft on my transfer case moves in and out a little, about 5/32 of an inch. I take it as normal end play...... anyone else experience this?

    I don't remember the one on my '01 ever moving but i changed the seal 4x so im assuming it did, otherwise why would the seal crap out so many times.

    Is it literally moving in and out or side to side? The rear output shaft is supported by a needle bearing and this bearing typically dies a miserable death after a long time of high pitched whining when the transfer case has been ran low on fluid.

    no just end play as in and out. Not much but enough to get it to make a slight sound. About 3/32 of an inch.
