    I recently got into an accent were I slid off the road during a rainstorm. Before the accident my 4wd engaged and disengage perfectly smooth. After repair, I've noticed that while engaging smoothly, when I go to disengage it, there is a noticeable thump or jolt. Since this is my first truck and experience with 4wd I'm looking for thoughts on what happened/broke and any solutions you might have. Thanks in advance!

    Did any tire(s) get damaged and replaced? Even a small mismatch in tread depth or even tire pressure differences can cause this.

    How major was the damage? No diffs replaced with a different gear ratio I assume?

    disengage it on a loose surface, and see if it does the same thing.

    I was in 4hi and had cruise control on when I turned it off. Now it does the same thing.

    Find a gravel road and turn it on & off as you drive at a steady speed. I don't know how the cruise changes things, but I would keep it off during this exercise.
