Greetings all. 1996 XJ approx 90K miles. I always had a problem when the 4X4 was engaged that I couldn't turn the wheel all the way to one side without the car having a fit. Now when I turn my wheel all the way to one side even without the 4X4 engaged it makes noise the resists the turn. When the car is in park its not problematic but when I try to drive ie; U-turn, K-turn and pulling out of parking spots it starts to sound like something is wrong. My alignment is straight and when I had it on a lift for an oil change the mechanic said that everything looked fine. Any thoughts? (I don't think it's the gearbox because when the car is in park I can turn the wheel all the way in each direction....) thanks
It's either bad U-joints or improper use of the 4wd.. The only time you should use 4wd on pavement EVER is if you have a 242 Transfer case, with the shifter in the 4FT position. If you have a 231 case you should NEVER use 4wd unless you are on slipper road surface, ie dirt or snowy street.

If it aint dirty, it aint a JEEP, it's just a SUV.
