Sounds like the tires are rubbing the springs (this would make it vibrate too)

Did you adjust your steering stops??

You're not trying to park your jeep in 4wd on pavement are you? Because I could understand your problem if you are.

Due to the language barrier (Check where he's from). I'm going to let this one go for a while.

As was said are you parking or driving this thing on pavement in 4wd? or not?

A suggestion, Lets all do a list of what junk we have on our rigs and list it here for only 1 week?
Are you suggesting *gasp* JU sigs? <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

A better suggestion would be to add another little icon up beside "Profile", "Reply with quote", etc. that links to a personal readers ride page where you can post a pic or two, and list everything ya got... Sound good? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

no locker and no tire rubbing on the springs.thing is i've allways driven in 4x4 and this never happened.
p.s.if i told you that my 2nd jeep is a 78 cj7 with amc 360 fully tweaked-dyno test 380hp-would you lose the attitude?

Well I can see there's no language barrier involved here... We have to give you grief, since you're a newbie. Consider it a hazing of sorts. Kind of pathetic, but all in fun <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">. We're (at least I am) are easily amused...

Attitude off... <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Is the steering wheel kicking back when you turn it hard to one side? Is there any clicking or poping when you do this? Are you running on loose surface such as gravel, mud, dirt or on pavement?

Sounds to me like you are doing this on pavement and the wheel u-joints are binding or are worn out. My Dodge 4x4 gets real mad at me when turning on pavement in 4wd with no locker, hard to turn and it kicks back. My Jeep that is locked front gets down right mad if I try to drive in 4wd on pavement..

If the wheel is kicking back: wheel u-joints are maxed out when turing and you need to adjust your turn stops.

If clicking and poping, wheel joints are worn out and need to be replaced.. ENJOY

If running on pavement in 4wd STOP NOW !!!

Attitude ON !!!.... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
