If you have a positraction rear differential, the clutches may be sticking. If so, change lube and use an additive for posi rears. After changing lube, go in a parking lot and make a series of tight turns in both directions to get plates to separate and resume normal function. Before changing lube check to make sure it is full and that no suspension components in the rear are broken or loose that could cause rear to move and drag one wheel when turning.

In sharp turns, right or left, front end shinmies/shakes. Is this a trnsfer case problem..? Have a 2000 Grand Cherokee with Quadra-Trac

I don't remember what the cut-off year was when Jeep changed from standard universal joints to C/V joints but your problem sounds a lot like a bad end joint on a front axle shaft. "U" joints are "X" type...CV's have a rubber boot covering them. If the boot is torn that also could cause the CV to fail but unless they are really bad generally they get real noisy first before they get to the point of binding.
Only way your transfer case could be doing that is if you have different size tires in the front or rear.
Usually a bad transfer case will make the whole vehicle shudder, even going straight.
If you have X type joints, don't go by how they look... you need to remove them to see if they are binding.

Where can i get the ratio for a 1995 jeep grand cherokee rear axil?

Check the tag bolted to the cover on the rear axle. If it has already been removed, check the tag on the cover (also bolted) of the front rear. 3:55 and 3:73 are the most common. Otherwise, if you remove the rear cover, count the teeth on the big gear, then count the teeth on the smaller one (right or left). Divide the larger number into the smaller number to find the ratio. Hope that helps. If so please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.

All wheel drive jeep grand cherokee stutters when turning

You are correct about the joint binding. Generally though unless it is really bad, they just run dry and bind making any external observation pretty much invalid. You really should try and figure out which side is binding and remove that axle and try to move the joint by hand. Very easy to tell if it's bad then.

1995 Jeep, grinding,jolting wheel movement when turning

the jeeps with awd or full time 4wd have a viscous coupling in the transfer case that transmitts power to the front axle when the rear looses traction. if the tires on the jeep are mismatched or the tires are not properly inflated it can engage the awd thus forcing the front and rear axles to turn at the same speed. when turning, the front wheels must turn faster than the rear because they are following a wider arc than the rear, this causes binding in the drivetrain which is releived by the tires slipping on the pavement sporradicly. the viscous coupling is filled with fluid that, when heated by the friction of the input spinning faster than the output, locks the coupling. a mismatch in tire sizes or tire inflation can produce just enough heat to lock the coupling in summer, but not in winter. to make a long story short, these vehicles are very sensitive to diffeneces in tire diameters.

normaly you wouldn't drive all the time in 4 wheel drive in less it is mad that way but the reason it jearks when turning sharp is because the front axle is tring to grip but the tire just bends and slips commen problem
