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.
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).
