Default What's wrong with my 4X4

Ok I have a 94 Gmc K1500 V6. I was out doing some wheeling and got stuck in a hole and then somthing in my front end started grinding and my front tires stoped spining. It's not the u-joints or the cv shafts what else could it be?

Please help
Kent

you stripped the shifter lock in on the front axle. I'll see if I have a diagram handy. it is inside the alluminum housing next to the diff . there is two 2 wire plugs going to it, one is the heater/accuator & the other is the sensor that tells you it locked in. most likely you weren't locked in good and stripped the shift ring.

Thanks for the help do you know how hard is it to change that and what do you do to change it? I have never fixed IFS. Do I have to take the pumkin all apart or just the shaft housing off the pumkin?

in order to access the shifter you have to split the tube section off the diff. start by dropping the right side axle shaft off the stub shaft. then unbot the 2 bolts above the T shaped braket. then the 5 bolts that hold the tube to the Diff housing. it should pull right in half. use the diagram here to help you idenify parts. most dealers have stuff in stock, but it varys.

Thanks for all the help but it turned out to be the driveshaft..

I striped the splines on the driveshaft which is a very easy fix. I never tried to spin the shaft when I checked the u-joints.

Again thanks for the help.

My friends 92 did the same thing. Nobody believed that he could strip the yoke in the driveshaft with a V6.
