I have had to remove the front drive shaft because we (mechanic) thinks that the front dif is gone bad. At this point, I can't afford to have this replaced/repaired. What do I need to know or do while the drive shaft is out? Do I need to move my "4wd" knob to any particular setting? Right now its in AWD. Is there anything that I should expect? Is there any type of damages this could cause with the driveshaft out? I have to admit. I like driving it without that ... sluggish feeling, but I don't know if I am causing additional damage anywhere having the front shaft out and driving it around. Can I leave it like this, and not have the drive shaft reinstalled? Any info, input, guidance.. .. would be highly appreciated. But I have to admit, I hate this damsel in distress feeling. Thanks!
