Inspect your CV axles and boots for leakage of the molybdenum disulphide grease they put in there~caution skin irritant if it is leakin' the grease...an axle or two may be in order~ https://www.google.com/#q=2004+avalanche+drive+axle&tbm=shop

If I stretch my imagination a bit the TCS traction control system what applies the brakes to take control of your car could be "featherin" or pulsing the brakes to slow one wheel down.....myeah...could be~


i fixed my buddies 2007 with the exact same problem. it was the drivers side motor mount. they are notorious for breaking. not a bad fix. but the part cost is stupid.
