    I have a terrible grinding noise going on in 2wd that completely goes away in 4wd. It sounds like something is trying to engage.

    '93 Chevy 4wd / 5 speed manual.

    I can't tell if the noise is from the xfer, driveline or front diffy. Is there some kind of typical problem of this nature? How can I figure this out?

    Best guess is the slider in the transfer case. There are 'plastic' pads on the shifter fork, and when they wear out the extra clearance lets the slider dance around when the transfer case is in 2WD.
