I just changed the transfer case fluid in my wifes 2000 astro AWD. It made a jerking sensation on acceleration and when making a tight turn under acceleration. The fluid change solved all problems. Just make sure you use the factory lube. Auto trac II from GM dealer ,only $8.00 a qt.

Feels like chatter in rear end when accelerating 2004 f150 4x4

Check the "U-Joints" on the drive shaft and or rear wheel/axle bearings.
You MAY need a little help as the wheel(s) needs to be of the ground to check axle bearing. Grasp top and bottom of the tire and wobble it in and out.

Custom buggy wrapped on Astro AWD

All depends on the 4.3 your going to install. The transmission are the same, that both use the 4L60E. E being that the transmission is controlled by a ECM with the engine. If your running a Aspirated 4.3 and not fuel injected, your going to have to run a 4L60 transmission. 
As for the AWD the new AWD system on the Astro works off the ABS system as it runs on 2WD till the PCM detects the lost of traction then the transfer case is activated by the ECM.
The earlier Astro and Safari AWD 1991 to 1994 had a true AWD and stayed active, but was not that great off road since it had a 40/60 split ratio front to back transfer.
Good luck and hope this helps.

'05 Astro van is "bucking" at low speed when turning left or righ

Sounds like you have a c/v joint beginning to go bad...Could be wrong.... but, I'm not there to test it! Look underneath and see if any c/v boots are torn... that will be your first clue!!
