4wd part time is not meant to be driven on pavement. Tires are trying to turn at different speeds and the TC won't let them, so something has to give. When I first bought my Jeep, I drove it in 4wd PT on very light snow on the road and it made some pretty bad noises when making tight turns. I learned pretty quick after that.
If you do have it in 4wd on pavement, don't turn at all. Especially tight turns. Yes, that will cause all sorts of noises and it's bad for the TC. Find a loose gravel road or mud if you want to try out the 4wd system.
Now if it starts making noises when you put it in 4wd and go straight, it could be the TC linkage. Mine did that once and just needed a little adjusting.
