Ok I'm trying to troubleshoot a binding in my steering. It feels like the more I fully turn the more it binds up (going straight I don't feel any resistance). Kinda like when your taking a sharp turn in 4 wheel drive and you hear the popping noise from the transfercase slipping to allow the 2 driveshafts to go different speeds around a turn. Except I have in Auto and its doing it. However, I know its definitely not in 4x4 when its happening cause I can still switch on the 4x4 switch and feel the steering get heavier. Anyway what I am trying to do is disconnect my front drive shaft to see if its my transfer case, but i can't figure out how to pull apart the darn CV-Joint on the transfercase side of driveshaft. My haynes manual and my ford CD just say unbolt it, which I did but its not coming apart. I've been scouring the forums here for like 2 hours so please don't flame me saying use search, cause i didn't manage to find anything on actually disconnecting the driveshaft with a CV. So my question is how do I get the darn CV-Joint apart on the transfercase side of the driveshaft? Or do I not want to do this because then it would need to be repacked professionally? The ford manual cd said to discard the old bolts, are they only good for one torque or something? Sorry for the long post, I'd appreciate any help, and fast cause I gotta get to work on monday. Thanks!
