how do you know if you have this problem, what are the signs?

I think it will make strange noises!!!

pretty much...and slow tight turns (pulling into the garage, backing out of a parking spot etc). some have already noted the symptoms but here they are again. the rear tends to drag and there is some definitely binding in the rear...can be heard from outside the car. some said this is the lockers not disengaging due to the contaminated fluid...how the techs came up with a failed read dif on mine and claim the t-case should be okay is beyond me....

When you make a full turn or a U-turn the rear end lockers don't unlock correctly and it vibrates with a shuffle sound.You will know if you have that problem.The water in the Transfer case has to be flushed out each time they flush it they do it twice.

I have lots of noise from the rear end when going into drive and reverse. Also can hear and feel a clunk when it shifts. Hearing a whining on deceleration or on the highway. Guess I will be making a trip to the dealer.
