    Are the transfer case mounts supposed to flex? My rear end feels like it drops when I stop. It also does this when I hit the gas and brake at the same time (kind of like power braking). I thought it was axle wrap, but the axle isn't moving at all. I looked at my transfer case and the mount flexes. I dont know if this is the problem or not, so if you have any other suggestions please let me know.

    Thanks!!

    Have you checked the engine mounts as well? The tranny/tcase adapter and engine mounts flex A LITTLE, But if they are slamming back down- there probably shot.

    Maybe your rear shocks are starting to wear out?

    Sounds EXACTLY like what mine does.........feels horrible, doesn't it? Offroad Design sells replacement xfer case mounts that are only $45, that is on my list........the originals are rubber and depending on the age of your rig (mine is 21 yrs old) are probably loaded with grease/oil and are shot.
