Axel and pilot bearings are two different things. The pilot bearing soes in the endd of a crankshaft and the axel bearings are on the axels. Neither should cause transfer case problems.

you should check the front anti-sway bar bushings, if that dont work check all ball joints , tie rod end's and stering knuckles if that don't get it check your wheel bearings. I have a '91 ford explorer and I had that problem. I forget the layout of a '98's suspension but anyways, the problem was the bushings for where the radius arms go into a frame cross beam. (The radius arms run front to back).

What is the cause and the solution of a 1992 Ford Explorer with push button 4wheel drive being stuck in 4high?

I have a 96 Explorer - had the same problem. There is a side cover on the transfer case, behind which is a small electric motor and a gear drive that switches the transfer case from high to low. I cleaned up this worm gear and re-greased it. Works fine now. I presume the problem was that since I hadn't used 4low for a long time, the grease on the worm dried out and caused the electric motor to thermo out and not run. Works now.

1986 jeep Comanche makes a rattling sound when you try to start it?

I had a similar problem with mine. As well the engine would rattle just after stepping on the gas only. I suspected rocker arms. Retorquing them did help with power but did not solve the problem. After tearing things apart, and my truck dying, I discovered the cause of the problem, the connecting rod bearings. 2 bearings where spinning and one was fused to the crank. The slop in these bearings was making all the noise. Interestingly the rattle always sounded like it was coming from the back of the engine or on the passenger side of the engine, not the bottom where I would have expected it to be coming from. I hope that helps.
