It is probably the viscous coupling - mine went out just after warrenty was out - been driving it since with no problems (other than the binding that you mention) now has 175,000 miles. I wouldn't worry about it - other than you will probably have to replace all 4 tires together. You won't be able to just put on 1 or two new tires. I tried once to just replace the two rear tires and could tell there was a binging issue (all four tires have to be the same size) so i replace the other two also.

Had you thought about changing the balljoints? All wheel drive? if so make sure all your tires are the same size, im sure they are but its more a curiosity question. I would say since i ran across that a few times on jeeps the ball joints.

If it feels like the front end is hopping or binding than I would put my money on the four wheel drive being engaged. On dry pavement the four wheel drive has no way of of slipping through a turn. the front end will hop to compensate for this.

If your lucky enough to find a snow covered parking lot or field or even a loose gravel road, try some tight turns. If the problem goes away its in the four wheel drive system.

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.

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.

Tension in steering column, bad jerking when backing up, parking and turning slow.


if this is a 4x4 vehilce, make sure the switch to activate the 4x4 system is in 2WD. This sound like the 4WD has been engaged. Once the 4WD is engaged and you make turns on dry pavment this tension you're feeling will happen. This is a conflict inside the 4x4 system due to dry roads, the clutches in the rear differentail or transfer case are binding. The only time you engage the 4x4 is on wet/slipperly surface.

Wheels making binding noises when turning


I have this same problem with my 1996 Subaru Legacy 2.2 Wagon. There is a Subaru Service Bulletin #16-62-97 dated 5/16/97 with a Subject entitled "Transfer Clutch Binding And/Or Bucking On Turns". There is also an important follow-up to it numbered 16-64-99 dated 09/15/99 entitled "Revised Transfer Clutch Assembly Replacement Procedures" that should also be used should you decide to go ahead with the transfer clutch replacement.

I just got these Service Bulletins from my mechanic who got them from a Subaru dealer.
The estimate was about $700-$1000 to fix. This is more than likely the cause of the binding problem on slow, sharp turns.

Popping noise


Inner tie rods could make the same noise your describing. Do this......with your car in park and at idle, slightly turn you wheel from left to right, just a slight ****. 1/16 of a turn. Increase the pace from left to right, then slow down the pace. You should feel a bump in the steering wheel almost like something is tapping it. If so, have your inner and outer tie rods checked. Actually, have the steering gear checked also for leaks and wear.
