    Here's what I got, a 91 k5 stock blazer with 33's.

    I was wheeling last weekend and as soon I put it in 4WD and moved I got a klunk klunk klunk. I heard it forward and in reverse. I put it back in 2WD and it was fine.

    My plan is to take it to Rowland Power Train here in jville. They have the best reputation in town.

    My questions are:

    1. Should I go to a performance shop?


    2. Is it just the U-joints in front of the transfer case?


    3. Does this make any sense?

    4. Locals? Is Rowland Power a performance shop?


    I'm still a newbie to the 4 wheeling world.

    Check the front driveshaft c/v. Noises are common when that starts to go.

    They're givin it to ya in the butt :doah: :mad: ....If you are any kind of mechanic, you can do everything yourself for about $250 (retail).....bearing/seal kit, chain, and prolly a range fork.....or pick up a used one for $150-$600 depending on your area....$300 or so here in Dallas....

    The rebuild places here get $600 if you drop it off....takes about 30 minutes to drop and 45 minutes to replace...$1750 is the highest price I have ever heard for a 241 case..... :eek1:

    The seal kit and all takes a couple hours working patiently and slow...it ain't a hard job....

    Dude, if it works fine it 2wd, I seriously doubt your t-case is shot. Sounds like driveshaft/front end problems to me.

    They are trying to screw you, I would at least think about trying to do it myself, or maybe look around at some junk yards - I doubt you'll be paying $1750 for a T case. In all seriousness do not let them do that work, huge rip off in so many ways, I am speechless. I could get a remanufactured 350 long block installed for less than that. (Because I did). You should really consider some other options. :o

    The most expensive thing in a 241 is tha planetary and thats only around $400! For 1750$ you can get a SYE, new shafts, clocking ring, skid plate, and have $$$$$$ left over
