odd driveline quirk?

I am new to 4wd vehicles, elsd diffs, etc...


But...

Floor it from a stop. Shifts 1-2. I let off a second or two after the shift is complete and feel through the steering wheel a minor "bump" and faintly hear a minor bump coming from the left front wheel area. It reminds me of accel/decel in a light manual sports car and the rear diff backlash slack. Is thus normal for my vehicle? It is only experienced in the exact scenario I described.

Second:

1-3mph left hand turns. I feel a similar sensation as above also added is that the wheel resistance feels similar to torque steer in a fwd car. It kindof has a "struggling/shifty variance" to the feel of it about 3/4 of the way to impending lock.

I see zero slack on center when watching my wheels and turning. Nor do I feel slack when doing so. I turn steering 1mm, wheels twitch 1mm.

Is this just normal for a 4wd qd2 jeep? I'm used to corvettes and things like that. This is all "new" and I'm sure there is some nature of the beast type stuff in this world like there was with sports cars.


Traded the '10 WK w/Hemi and QD2 in on 5/15/15 for a '15 mazda CX-5 2.5L AWD Touring. Happier!

First feeling you mention sounds to me like the trans doing the next upshift when you let off...sounds normal but hard to diagnose via keyboard.

Second issue, keyboard effect is worse...no idea.

08 Limited Hemi - wheels, tires, springs...ya know, stuff
