First check the oil in the difs and the t-case, ad if to low and if the oil in the difs is milky like it has water in it and needs to be changed. If this does not fix it check the drive shafts for a little play in the joints if there is play they need to be changed. If not the shafts it could be in the diffs and then you need have them checked out maybe time for rebuild. I always start on the easyest and cheapest thing first so do this in this order :o)
