'95 cherokee knocking/clicking sound...

'95 cherokee knocking/clicking sound when turning all the way to the right, ONLY when I'm in 4WD. The sound is so bad, it sounds like something is rubbing up against something that it's not supposed to... Where should I begin? The U-joint on the front driver's side is rusted pretty badly, so I'm guessing that's part of it?? Like I said, only in 4WD does this happen...

Thanks.

Your U-joints are bad on the front- unless theres a grease fitting your can add grease.
Need replaced before something worse happens.

That's what I was thinking. How hard a job is it to replace that u-joint? how do I get it out of there? Do I need a special tool?

Thanks.

Sometimes pressed in, sometimes with C clips. Depends on the axle vendor for one.

Check www.autolibrary.org or your service manual?

4WD or 2WD??

One thing I'm not sure about when going to this website(or kbb.com or any of those) is whether not my jeep is 4WD or 2WD. The jeep is 4WD, but not full time. Does that mean I should follow the 2WD links?

My other question is, will I need any special tools to get the bearing out? I was just reading this:

Remove what remains of the inner bearing as follows:
Install a bearing separator tool on the inner bearing.
Position the separator tool and hub in an arbor press.
Force the hub out of the inner bearing with press pin tool 5074

If you have 4WD settings on your console/shifter, you have 4 WD.

You can easy tell by the fact you have a big honking differential in the front, you have 4WD

As for the tools required you might try an Autozone.

Thanks, but I'm not sure I asked the right question there. I know the truck is 4WD, but i think these websites want to know if it is full-time 4WD?? not sure. How about the other question about needing special tools for the bearings. Thanks

If you can select between 4WD and 2WD with a lever/switch, then you do not have full time 4WD.
