07 6mt full time 4wd. So under acceleration I get a loud pop that sounds like it’s coming from the front end. If I stay on the gas it will be a repeated pop until I back off. Sounded like passenger side so I replaced the cv axle but didn’t change anything. I recently pulled the front shaft and greased the slip joint and the ujoints. The ends moved freely and didn’t seem to have any play in them. With the shaft out and in 2wd only there is no noise. So it leads me to believe it’s either in the front end or TC. I’ve seen videos where people talk of a loose TC chain having too much slack and skipping teeth. There is no hum or growling while going down the road so I suspect the front diff is fine. Just changed the fluid in it. Noticed some metal on the magnet but not much so who knows. There is still the driver side cv axle that has excessive grease leaked and wouldn’t hurt to change but I don’t want to just throw parts at it in hopes of repairing it. Has anyone had to replace a tc chain yet? Should I just get a lower mileage unit or do they even make rebuild kits or ever a chain for that matter?
