99 WJ rear right tire brakes/lockes up when turing (merged)

Yesterday i switched my wj from 2wd to 4 full time and went off roading with it. After i got off the dirt i switched it back to 2wd and drove about two miles. when i noticed that it said i was in 4 part time on my dash when i never was. I switched it back to 4 full than 2wd and the part time light left. Now when i take deep turns my rear right wheel locks up and the tires screech and it feel as it is dragging. What happened?

The piece that holds the linkage on your T case probably fell off, take a look under your jeep and check the linkage going to the T case.

Again, check the linkage. It's common for the clip to break off and then the T case will be stuck in one gear setting.

WJ rear wheels locks while turing.

My WJs rear right tire locks up and screeches as its being dragged when i take sharp turn. Some people said my t case linkage, spider gears are worn out or my limited slip diff. What can the problem be? im a noob so if you guys can help me out that would be great.

most likley limited slip locking up.. could need a rebuild but i would start with a fluid change with an extra dose of LSD additave.

Why did you make two threads about it 30 mins apart?
