That's normal for that type of 4 wheel drive system on that vehicle to a degree. If it's horribly bad, could be u-joints in front axles that go from front differential to wheel.

True, this is normal operation. There is no differential action between the front and rear axles and when you turn, all 4 wheels want to turn at different speeds. Your 4X4 was designed to be used on slippery surfaces only. BTW - make sure that all 4 tires are the same size.

mazda if there air in power steering will do also jack the front up with motor running turn all the way left and right a few times to purge.
