    So what specifically is causing the clunk on the front differential? If you're not of mind to fixing it, get a used one and keep driving. If the fluid level in the transmission went down and up in the transfer case, then it likely would be seals. Could have been checked when hot and fluid was expanded and spilled out of fill? I am well prone to assume the worst but from my keyboard can sit back and think of the simpler things!

    Took it to a shop today that only does differentials. Pinion and carrier bearings were way out of alignment. So glad I spent all that money a year ago for another company (trans shop) to put new ones in and do &*(% job. I love mechanics.

    Decided to change the ring and pinion as well. Still had noise from the front even after the previous attempt to repair.

    Paid exactly the same for bearings and seals. No gears at that time since “they look fine”. I was informed by the new shop that they do look fine but was advised to change them since they still had a whining noise.
