    There is a possibility it's the Ujoint caps peaking out and hitting the knuckle,happened to me until it poped out and the joint grenaded.

    Could be several things. Try checking the u-joints, hubs, and even the axle shafts for breakage.

    if the tires still grab, id check the tcase for noises too, if it "popped out of 4wd"...

    I would also lean to the t-case for the issue, you have a 208 (chain driven.) It could hide a problem more than a gear driven one would.
