Transfer Case???

When I turn in 4wd the front end binds and lurches. Changed the u joints and that didnít help and it only happens in 4wd. Do I have bad transfer case?

What kind of surface are you trying to drive on? If it's a paved surface then that's normal and you'll end up messing something up if you keep doing it.

We had a snow storm two weeks ago and it still happen on snow covered roads. I have put 218k on Jeep and this issue has come about within the last month.

I realize sharp turns will cause a binding effect but Iím not able to turn from a main road onto a side street.

If the 4x4 works normally on non-pavement surfaces, the T-case is fine.

I flip 4x4 on and off as needed when driving on pavement in snowy/icy conditions. When turning in 4x4 some binding of the front axle is to be expected.
