    Sad front differential??

    What’s going on everyone! I’ve been away for a while but I was doing 14 hour days 7 days a week since June! So to give an update on the Yukon. I climbed under the SUV and played with the front yolk to see what it felt like. Turning wise it didn’t seem terrible it had a little bit of a noise to...

    Sad front differential??

    Was just working through the possibility of tires. Was ruling out the ability of balancing tires is all! I could give it a wear pattern check for sure. Never hurts to run with an idea.

    Sad front differential??

    Never threw an ABS sensor. When I initially bought the vehicle I had an ABS light on. That was do to a cut or broken wire at the wheel hub sensor on the drivers side. The bolts for the brake line/Abs wiring were missing and so the brackets were loosed which I figured was due to someone at...

    Sad front differential??

    My tires need replaced, I wouldn’t say they’re “trash” but they could Be replaced for sure. Where I am there is no balancing machine so I couldn’t tell you if they’re out of balance but what I can tell you is there is no speed limit on the roads that do exist that is above 40MPH and with the...

    Sad front differential??

    I’ll definitely be getting it back up in the air and disconnecting the drive shaft to spin the pinion. Ill report back once I get it done. Maybe I’ll be able to get to it tomorrow but it’s looking like more of a Monday project. I replaced all the U joints about 6-8 months ago. There’s always a...

    Sad front differential??

    There’s probably some junk rigs out at the city pit I might be able to Score a front diff to swap for now I’ll have to go and see. I was wanting to re-gear for lower gears since im running bigger tires with a little old 4.8 and a leveling kit (that’s how I bought it) so maybe this is just the...

    Sad front differential??

    I haven’t even engaged it into 4LO I’ve only ran it 4HI and AUTO. In fact while on a test drive my brother was riding shotgun and I made that comment on how I didn’t even know if it worked. The dragging feel is strong enough I didn’t want to cause anymore damage by dropping the gearbox into...

    Sad front differential??

    But aside from that noise the 4WD engagement just doesn’t feel right. Too much drag and the weird noise.

    Sad front differential??

    This is my second set of cv axels, second set of brand new Cv’s boots are completely fine. On first drive out of the garage had the same *tap/*click sounds almost exactly like a cv Axel, and it’s rhythmically speeds up and slows down with speed. If you Jack the front end up and spin the axels...

    Sad front differential??

    I’ve got the AUTO 4WD option I was under the assumption this was your engagement option for hard surfaces or rock. But not on pavement no, loose rock yes auto 4WD, or 4H do roughly the same however when AUTO engages it’s an obvious *drag* to the vehicle. A very obvious drag like an almost Lurch...

    Sad front differential??

    I’ll give it a look, I replaced the front drivers side Axel seal. I haven’t touched the pinion seal. All I’ve done to the front diff was replace the drivers side axel seal where it had a leak and then drained the fluid and filled with new. I get the *tap or *click in 2WD when 4WD not...

    Torsion bar madness HELLLP *RESOLVED*

    I didn’t order them I decided not to go with the torsion bar bushings. I couldn’t see spending the money on them when in the long run I wanted to do a coil over conversion anyways. But I couldn’t get the factory style bushings anywhere I assume they’re dealer only. Hahahaha but I’m in a pretty...

    2005 GMC Yukon power steering pump replacing

    So I did a quick skim of the forum and didn’t see a write up of replacing a power steering pump on a 4.8,5.3,6.0 etc power steering pump. There’s some variations between Hydro boost and non hydro boost but it’s rather similar unfortunately I didn’t take pictures. If I end up having to do another...

    A shimy ? Left right throw *RESLOVED*

    Scotty dogs didn’t see your response until now! So I was able to get a helper and climb under the Yukon while they turned the wheel. I had a little bit of play in the pitman arm and it looked like I also had some play in the input shaft on the steering gear box. Don’t know if that’s common...

    Torsion bar madness HELLLP *RESOLVED*

    So as future to anyone having torsion bar issues. Here’s what I’ve learned. Flipping my bars front to back back to front didn’t make much of a difference in fact I’d say almost no difference. They’re currently in “L,R” towards the rear as that’s why everyone has said they had seen as correct...
