    2 vacuum lines run off the diff. and go to two actuators or relays that should be located behind the battery on passenger firewall. you can test it by putting a vacuum gauge on it an see if it pulls a vacuum and start from there. just check the line for holes or anything that might have burnt through it. usually the cluck is the transfer case locking into 4wd not the front diff. inside the t-case are shift forks that lock in the gears thats what clunks
