I need help!! My truck has 4wd issues!!!

Have a 97 grandcherokee and i just replaced the transfer case its a 242j selectrac fyi. When i make circles or sharp left or right turns the front wheels seem to skip or hop more than a vehicle in 4wd should it feels like the front end is wobbling almost when u turn left or right sharply. But the wheel u joints seem ok and the front ends decent besides a worn drag link . Now what could be the cause of this issue from what i can tell the wheel ujoints "seem" ok but i need a second opinion. Cmon jeepers i need some input help me out!!!!!!!!

You are still in 4wd part time. Are you sure you don't have a 249?

Post in the ZJ forums for more help, sounds like you're either stuck in 4WD PT or you have the NP249 TC and the viscous coupler is locking up/going bad.

4.0 or 5.2 motor? The linkage may be out of alignment. It may look like you are in 2WD in the Jeep, but the TC is still in 4WD.
