If it is old enough to have actual "U" joints at the knucles (by the wheel) check to be sure they are not locking up. Also if it has a servo on the front axle, be sure it is disengaging and that the vac. switch on the transfercase is working. A year would be very helpful.

If its 4 wheel drive, you may want to check your u-joints / cv joints. also check to make sure the tire isnt rubbing on anything at a sharp angle. A bad wheel bearing will also cause a familiar issue

Is this a manual 4 wheel drive system that can be shifted into 2 wheel drive? These type of systems should be in 2 wheel drive for tight turns. The drive train locks the differentials to make it 4 wheel drive and with the 4x4 engaged it creates this lunge grabbing effect.

it is difficult to make sharp turns while in 4 wheel drive on a hard surface. If you are able to make sharp turn easily in 2 wheel drive then everything is probably OK. Check your owners manual and review the 4 wheel drive section, there is much to learn.

The tirerods on the burbans can get wedged when turning sharp. Have seen a couple do it.

Just to double-check, you can Check for your stearing trim is in the middle and not pushed aside. Once you have done that, take everything apart, gears out and etc... turn on the car. Let the servo center and pop everything in as carefully as you can and close as the middle as you can. Re-assemble and see if it's any better.

Also, check your servo wires leading onto the board. See if any of them are loose or have even fallen off.

Another possibility that I have seen is when you turn the wheel all the way to the lock, the power steering pump is still trying to turn it further, which is why the steering feels jerky. You can blow up the pump, or a hose, by holding the wheel against the lock. You won't turn any wider if you let the wheel come back one quarter turn, but you will take the pressure off of the pump.

4 wheel drive lock up


hey charlie, 1st problem is 4 wheel drive being engaged on dry pavement. You should only have it in 4x4 in snow, or off road on sand, dirt,etc. Newer all wheel drive vehicles compensate for the tires rotating at different speeds, like going around a sharp corner. The wheels on the outside of the turn have a longer distance to travel than the wheels on the inside of the turn. This results in the vehicle feeling like it's jumping, hopping or jerking as you cut a tight turn. You can damage your 4x4 system, as the wheels are fighting each other, trying to turn the same # of rotations, and something can and will give (like blowing the transfer case). If your light is staying on after changing to 2 wd, it is possibly stuck in 4x4. To shift from 4wheel to 2 or 2wheel to 4, you should be traveling in a straight line, let off the gas, change in or out of 4x4, resume driving. 4x4 low range requires a complete stop to engage.
