BW4405. The usual problems are : shift fork pad wear, and the bosses where the shift rail sets in the case wear, then the range slider doesn't engage fully. This causes a "zing" sound on decelleration. GM big-end starter bushings fit the shift fork shaft, and I have a machine shop bore the case to accept the new bushings. There are no bushings at that location from the factory. Don't buy a used or rebuilt case, yours can probably be repaired.

Um, no. I have two of them on the bench now. One is a 98, the other a 99. Both BW4405's. Both V-6's, one is thw SOHC, the other the pushrod. The BW4405 is the "automatic" 4wd setup. It uses a magnetic clutch to activate a ball-and-ramp, to apply the 4wd clutch. It has a planetary low range.

the problem he has with the current case is that it wont come out of 4hi. even in auto it wont shift outta 4hi. only way to get 2wd is takin out the front drive shaft.

The front output is engaged by applying a clutch pack. The clutch pack applies mechanically, with three balls in V-shaped grooves, or ramps. A magetic clutch, similar to an A/C compressor, is used to do this. Something is bound up, it has to come apart. They are not hard to overhaul.

Unplug the harness at the t-case. If it goes to 2wd, it is an electrical problem.
