The inner workings of the transfer case will still be moving. All the driveshaft does is transfer power from the transfer case to the front differential. As long as you don't engage 4 wheel drive the front gears in the case shouldn't be moving. If you're getting funny noises in 2wd you should get it looked at before you lose the whole transfer case.

OK is my frontdriveshaft supposed be be spinning in 2wd?
