I have the front stock axle in my 97 OBS w/ automatic lockers, when i put her into 4wd and turn her hard she starts rocking back and forth and makes a rubbing/popping sound on the passenger side. When not in 4wd there are no issues.
I went and put her on jack stands front and rear and removed all the tires, engaged the 4wd and put the tranny into neutral with the engine off. By spinning the front drive shaft by hand it will turn both rear hubs and the front drivers hub. Passenger side doesnt turn. The hub will still turn freely by hand as if it isnt locked, so i imagine there is an issue with that automatic locker?
