T-Case Replacement (How do you know?)

Mornin' fellas.

My T-case is really starting to whine quite load - even with a fresh Mobile 1 Synthetic oil-change. How do you guys know when it's "time" to rebuild it? Do you let it die first?

Also... what parts do I want to change/replace/rebuild while I'm at it?

The truck ('97 NAS D90) has 135k miles.

Probably best to do now. You most likely have a loose bearing. Just do a normal rebuild, bearings and seals. If you off road a one piece cross shaft for the center diff is a good idea.

Are those items I would order from Ashcroft if I buy a rebuilt unit from them?

How was the fluid that you drained? How much metal was on the drain plug?

I don't know. I had it done at the shop. They are very good at pointing things like that out when there is an issue.
