Default 02 4X4 question

have the o2 with manual shift 4X4, can I remove the cv joints and drive the truck without harming anything? can't afford the fix right now and need to get somewhere about 80 miles away. front end is sounding like something is trying to catch up every so often. dealer thinks its the splines on the cv joints have gone bad.

Default Should'nt b a prob.

I have an 02' quad cab 4x4 automatic. Just did both front hub bearings 2 months ago & had to cut the pass side half shaft off. Drove it for a couple of days till I replaced it with no problems. Would imagine we have the same front end. Just make sure there are no fluid leaks when you pull the shaft. FYI autozone sells the complete half shaft with cv joint and boot complete for about $80 bucks.

Yes you could do that shouldn't hurt. with mine I diconnected the frone drive shaft. Drove it like that for a few days why I waited for parts. Alot of garages can replace the bearings and both half shafts for about 350 bucks. Garages not dealers!!
