Default 88 GL Wagon Drivetrain/4WD

I have a 1988 GL Wagon with the shiftable part time 4WD with Hi/Lo range. When I am in 2WD/FrontWD, The car drives fine. When I shift into 4WD, there seems to be a fair amount of resistance/friction in the drivetrain. Even when I am moving and shift into neutral and allow it to coast, It comes to a stop much quicker than in 2WD. This leads me to believe that it is my rear differential, but I don't have any personal experience with my drivetrain. If anyone has any ideas, it would be gratly appreciated.

My guess is you are binding up because your tires are different sizes.

See if the fronts and rears are different brands, different sizes 185/70 R 13 or something like that..... and different wear levels.

Thats my guess
