    ok guys, for some reason at full lock of the steering wheel to either side something's binding, maybe not binding but when the wheels turned all the way it doesn't just keep rolloing like it used to, i have to give alittle gas and once i let up it stops... but only in 4x4 and only when the hubs are locked

    i looked underneath to see if i could see anything and everything looked ok.

    i noticed this today after i installed my square front driveshat and i didn't ever notice it before with the regular d-shaft.

    could it be the square shaft???

    It will bind up if the hubs are locked and the T-case is in 4-wheel drive and you are trying to do this on dry pavement. Its normal. I bet if you go do it on the dirt or snow it wont bind.

    Your new front shaft could be binding at the U-joints.

    i checked that today, i went out to a feild and was looking at everything, if the hubs are locked it does it, it can be in 2 wheel drive but if the hubs are locked it does it... but i did find that the cap to my manual locking hubs on the driver side was alittle loose :dunno:

    Bad u-joints in the axle shafts can do that. Mine did it real bad when the joints rusted up in the D60.

    They were probably at least 10 years old when I changed them. Took over 4,000 Lbs of pressure from the press to get them to budge.

    Put the front up on jack stands and move everything around to check it out.


    By move it around I mean by hand.....not under power from the motor. Think SAFETY
