Transfer Case Noise after SAS

So I did my SAS about 4 months ago and has been great. I love it. But i never had a front driveshaft until about a week ago. Now that it is in, m you can here what sounds like the chain spinning in my transfer case as the driveshaft spins. I know this is because of the automatic hubs making the driveshaft spim whereas the ifs it didnt, my big question is, is this ruining my transfer case?? The 4wheel drive works perfect no problems. I just want to know if anyone has this same noise and if it is something i should take concern in? I really dont want to buy a 1200 dollar D30 lock out hub conversion kit. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Are you still using the cv end driveshaft? If so it's probably the driveshaft making that noise.

Could you get manual locking hubs? They aren't that expensive.
