jumping car when turning full

I have a grand cherokee ltd 5,2 that jumps around when turning
right or left.Not so much when the car is cold but more when warm.Have been told that i have to change the transfer case.
Is that true? can i fix it myself (am good amateurmechanic).
Or who can fix this cheap?

Welcome to the forum!

Drivetrain binding in tight turns when warm sure sounds like a bad viscous coupling (249 transfer case). Not cheap to fix, some guys change to a 242 tcase. Maybe try searching here and at Jeeps Unlimited and at NAGCA, might get more info. Good luck!

Good write-up for 249 TC

Located a great write-up for modifying a 249 TC that had a bad viscous coupling. At the very least, you can see what the offending part looks like.

249 transfer case mod to 2WD High and 4WD Low
