Default D60 help

When in 4wd my front axle is making a bunch of clunking noises. It gets really bad when i try to turn. Sometimes it makes the noises when i get on it. What could this be? The U-joints are good. Could the carrier bearings make that noise? and how do i check those? I need to get this fixed real quick becuase i have a trip planned and less then 2 weeks. Also i was just thinking my D44 i had in the truck was making the same noises... Could it have something to do with the posi-lok? I have the posi-lok that was on the 44 on the 60 now and i haven't adjusted it ever.... Just a idea i dont know if that could have anything to do with it.

Drive shaft maybe? Pinion angle good? Check pinion nut to make sure its correctly tightened. It could always be the muffler bearings. LOL

The transfer case seems pretty solid. I just put the pinion yoke on before i took it for its first spin. So that all should be tight. I know its not my muffler bearings becuase i just greased them..

Ever get this figured out? I was thinking that the oil volume knob may be sticking and not properly oiling your gears in the front. ( ok....seriously now)

I had crushed a couple of spider gear teeth on some rocks in my front D30 and didn't realize it right away. They were'nt exactly noisy, but it would roll to those teeth in a turn and the front would lock up like I had an ARB or OX engaged.

So..in short, are your ring and pinion gears in good shape?
