Removing front gear case of 4wd tahoe
I bought a 99 2dr Tahoe. But its got a few issues with the engine, and drivetrain, etc.
But two of the problem is the front differentiall is leaking where the front drive shaft goes in, and it needs a new cv joint. I intend to use this as my daily driver when I get the engine fixed and get all the paperwork to get it put in my name taken care of.
So my plan is to remove the front differential completly until I have the time and money to rebuild it and get a new cv-joint. I intend to pull the cv-joints out at the spindle and put rubber caps over the open end of the spindle and separate the transfer case yolk from the driveshaft.
So, my questions are:
1. Assuming the transfer case front yolk is a slip yolk how would you suggest securing it into the transfer case, there appears to be a boot on it, will the boot keep it in there?!? Or should I leave the yolk out altogether and find a rubber cap or somthing to put over the open hole of the transfer case?
2. Is the transfer case part of the structure of the frame? It dont appear to me like it is, but I could be wrong.
Thanks in advance for all your help, Dee

If I read your post correctly you are trying to remove the front differential? If so you will not be able to drive the truck with it removed.Jim
