popping in 4 wheel

I noticed the other evening when I switched my 99 into 4wheel high the other day I got a popping under a light accel seemed to b coming frm front end. Only in 4wheel. I have a 99 f150 with 33inch super swamper ltb's and a 5 inch rcd lift. I don't know exactly but I didn't feel any shuddering just popping. I was just wondering if there are any thing I can buy to replace front end parts to make it stronger but don't want a sas in place of my ifs.

I'm having the same problem with my 04, trucks going to my mechanic either monday or tuesday, so when I find out I cant let ya know. From what people have told me it could either be the 4wd solenoid or the T-case.

The thing sounds like those bigger tires are making it pop when I get into the thrttle a lil bit. Imwndering if there is any aftermarket companies that make upgraded parts for front end to beef it up. I know wide open stabs at the throttle can't be good in mud but when I go I go hard.

I had this fixed on mine a couple of months ago. I can't remember the name of it. But there is a round 4 wheel drive actuator that mounts behind the hub. I replaced those and the noise went away. About $75 each It is trying to engage your 4 wheel drive even you may not be asking for it.

Unfortunately your front axle uses a different method to engage 4x4. The 04+ uses IWE ( Independent Wheel Ends) and yours uses a front axle disconnect system. The popping could be caused by binding and release of the drive train. Are you using 4x4on a hard surface? Are all your suspension parts tight. Steering linkage?

agree with Trombly, exactly the same thing with my truck, plus the vacuum control solenoid.... about a 175 dollar fix if you do the labor! and takes about 1.5 hours of your time!

Does it feel like the 4x4 is disengaging when the popping occurs?
