Locking front differential?

When I drive on the highway for a while then exit to slower driving, it feels like my front wheels are hopping over each other while making a slow tight turn in either drive or reverse. I have ben told it could be the transfer case, the fron differential, wheel bearings and just about anything else. The problem seems to be related to heat build-up because it used to only happen when the tepm. was above 50 degrees but now it happen even at lower temps. After setting for about an hour, the problem goes away. Has anyone ever experienced this???

ah......god bless quadratrac! as far as i know, your t-case is dead!(or will be soon...check out this site:www.duff.ws/grand_central/main.htm
same thing happened to this guy, and what sucks is you and I missed the good quadratrac t-case by a year..our '95's low range on the quadratrac t-case does NOT lock the front and rear driveshafts...but the '96-'98 does...our t-case is like a friggin diff between the front and rear axles...quite the bummer....but i will replace w/ a 96 nv-249. locking lows are the way to go. good luck.
