2WD/RWD Turning Issue

Hi my 2000 XJ has been having some strange turning issue that I can't seem to figure out .I've got a few ideas but I'm looking for more ideas. Here's the issue: When I'm in 2WD/RWD
and traveling at low speeds (less than 20mph) and at or near opposite lock it will "hop" or lurch side to side and make a little bit of noise (the best I could describe it) Plus if I'm not on the throttle it will almost stop the Jeep

PS I've changed my Front diff fluid and my T-Case Fluid so far.

Are you certain that your T case is not stuck in 4WD might want to get in some grass or mud and punch it while having a friend watch to see of either front tire spins.

I think it could be the cause I swear the T-Case makes noise even after I take it out of 4WD

Jackstands probably work too.

Any way you go about it you need to find out for certain whether or not you are stuck in 4wd before you destroy your T case. Right now it might be as simple as an adjustment, or damaged linkage.

JY or watch CL for someone parting one out. Many times all it need is to be adjusted.

Most likely the 4x4 shifter mechanism is out of adjustment, or your front axle u-joints are worn out.

Could this be a problem simply because of the solid front axle design? My dad's 2wd Cherokee does this on tight turns, my wife's does it and her shift linkage is stuck (bracket on tunnel rusted and linkage doesn't move anything) in 2wd AND no front driveshaft, and mine does it.

I only ask because two of the three Jeeps I drive on a regular basis they all have the same problem and three different configurations of vehicle (technically).

Possibly, a guy from the local Jeep Dealership said when he drove it in to the service area it did feel a little choppy
