Good question, I can't remember why it works in low but that used to be the way we tested them to know if the snap ring was broken or not back in the days when I had the shop.

Strange that a rebuilt would do the same thing, it is probably something else then. But you never know, and it does not take long to remove the drive shaft and pull the extension housing to go look just in case it ends up being one of those case of bad luck / amazing coincidence of two transfer case in the row with the same issue.

You don't even have to pull the extension housing to check for a broken snapring, just pull the driveshaft and grab the output shaft with a pair of vicegrips and see if it will move in and out. If it does, the ring is broken.

That's true, I never even thought about that. Keep it simple as the saying goes...

Had many with broken transfer case snap ring broken, but two units having the same problem is odd! would be looking at the trans.
