Front axle turing when not in 4wd
I replaced ball joints & U joint on drivers side a few weeks ago & I noticed that the axle on that side was turning when I would spin the tire. At first I thought my hub wasn't unlocking so I jammed a bar in the U joint & spun the wheel. Tire kept turning & axle stopped but there was alot of resistance there. Something was binding/jamming. So changed the ball joints & also changed the u joint, inner dust seal & outer seal that goes into the hub. I checked the wheel bearing & axle spindle area expecting to see soemthing. Everything looked good. I put everything back together & tested it. Shaft only turned when I locked the hubs. 4wd worked as it should. Checked it today it is doing the same thing.
Any suggestions is greatly appriciated.
