    Can you be specific about which actuator you are referring to? I can think of 2 parts that could be called "4x4 actuator:"

    1) the mechanism on the transfer case that "shifts" the transfer case. T-case is the thing located behind the transmission with the driveshafts coming out of it. You don't say if you have a lever/manual shift transfer case or an electric shift, but the shifting mechanism will be attached to the transfer case.

    2) the center axle disconnect (CAD) on the front differential. I believe it is usually near the place where the driveshaft attaches to the differential.
