it might be my bushings that need lubing or my drivesline needs to be greased.

i can do 35 in 4h with no issues. once i hit 40+ it starts to vibrate a little and makes a noise. i just recently repacked the bearings and that helped a little. still need to make the spindle lubing tool and see how it goes

no problems in 2wd at all.

parents are the original owner and now i am and its never been used in 4wd. only time it was used in 4wd was on a flat farm when i was younger (10 years ago) just driving around in circles. no more than 100 miles if that. recently (2weeks ago) i used 4wd to go snowboarding and it had no problems. speed limit was only 35 so it had no issues. couple of spots was a nice straight away with no snow so i went faster and felt the front end vibrate

Front end might need a rebuild, but I would check the u-joints first. I've been on the freeway going 65 in 4wd before when road conditions were slick. And my truck sees 50mph in 4wd after every snow storm, till I catch up to traffic

I consider the front end everything from the t-case output to the wheels.

First off, do both of your tires spin freely with the front end jacked up? With the hubs Locked? Does the driveshaft spin freely? Freeplay? Just start with the simple things.

im not really worry bout how fast i can go in 4L or even 4H. i wasnt sure if the shaking was due to going to fast in 4H or it was due to something wrong with my runner. i know now that 4H can go as fast as you can n it shouldnt have any issues. i now need to start with the little stuff and go from there to get my ride up to spec
