Turning judder

When i use alot of steering left or right when pulling off i get a judder until i straighten the steering a bit.
Is this low oil in the front diff or am i looking at a bigger bill?

how fast are you going when it happens? how tight of turns? pulling into a parking spot kind of turns, or turning onto a street kind of turns? what kind of transfer care do you have? have you checked the fluid level yet, that takes all but 5 mintes?

The quadra trac ZJ can bind when turning at lock. Do a figure 8 and see if it happens consistently. At that point it could be a few things

I had the same problem, get your tracking checked. My tracking was out, now allinged, no judders on tight lock, cheap fix. Good luck. Ade.

Pulling out of a junction or going round a mini roundabaut and it will do it.

I didn't want to start a new thread.

I've got a Selectrac (that's a 242, right), and have the same sort of issues when pulling into parking spaces and making tight, slow corners.

I've searched, and the Viscous Coupler doesn't seem to apply to the 242.

What's the next thing to check?

what options does your t-case shifter bezel say? ie: 4LO - N - 4 ALL TIME

im pretty sure the VC is shot in your transfer case is shot, but do a bunch of tight figure 8s in a parking lot to be sure. search for "viscous coupler".
your cheapest option would be to swap in a junkyard t-case. if you swap in a 242 its much less likely to go out again.

Did the WJ come with a 242?

You can't use a WJ's 242. The WJ 242 doesn't have an output shaft speed sensor which is what the ZJ uses for the speedometer.

This gent is going to have a hard time finding any parts in a junkyard in the UK.

I saw one WJ in two weeks in scotland last year.

There are few write-ups i've seen recently on switching t-cases in a ZJ. Search this forum or get one of the vets to recomend years or a place to find the swap write up.
