    Default Loud pop when I turn the wheel in 4 wheel drive

    My 2002 chevy silverado makes a loud pop when i turn the wheel and 4 wheel drive is engauged. It is not a continuos popping. It only happens once every time i turn. I'm new to the problems with chevy trucks and the problems that come along with having a lift and larger tires. any suggestions on what it could be?

    That is perfectly normal operation for part time 4wd trucks. Popping, binding in turns, particularly on dry pavement. Reminder 4wd should never be used on dry pavement! I too thoughts had issues, as I was accustomed to my full time 4wd Land Cruiser. At first I didn't understand the concept of no 4wd in the dry.
