Hi all, i've just started to get a very loud and nasty crunching sound from the front of the car (1993 Vitara JLX SE) when in 4WD when I turn hard left or right.
Anybody got any ideas? Only had the car a couple of months, and its just started.
HELP???
Thanks, Mike

Don't let it happen. I'm guessing it does this on tarmac roads rather than off road? If this is the case it it might be because when you turn hard, the inside wheel covers less ground than other wheels. The diffs though, are trying to turn all wheels the same rate. As it can't turn them all the same, the 4wd system can destroy itself. So if all wheels have good grip, stick to 2wd.
