It tells your truck what gear its in like Reverse, Neutral, Drive, 1st..etc. its just a little plastic box so its easy to crack and get water in.. but its easy to replace and doesnt cost too much money if you get it from the right person.

What does the shift motor do? Im starting to wonder if thats why i get a wobble in the front end every time i get up to 55. Its almost like it kinda stuck in 4 wheel sometimes lol. It goes away and it will stop if you touch the brakes. I still have my extended warranty so i was gonna bring the truck in next week.

it shifts the tcase from 2wd to 4hi and 4low and a neutral position.. the woble from your front end is prob idler arm and braket and a pitman arm they are bad on just about every chevy i see in my shop..

The 4 wheel drive light never comes on when i put the truck in 4 wheel.... i have the push button type. Maybe this has something to do with it possibly?
