My 4 wheel drive is binding around corners.
My 88 Ford Bronco seems to be binding in 4WD. Moving in a straight line seems to be
OK, but going around corrners, I can feel it binding and grabing. Is this the transfercase
giving out? I was told to drive it in some mud to release the tension. No bad noises, only
acts up w/hubs locked in 4x4 mode. 2x drive is fine. thanks for any tips.
that year 4x4 is not meant for dry hard surface, but it is normal to feel that binding on dry hard turns in 4x4.
That is right, those rigs are a true 4X4 with high and low range, 4X4 mode should only be used off of the black top or when roads are snow covered or very wet so the tires can slip during turns.
I agree with the previous posts. What you are feeling is normal. I would say that you should not ingage the 4 wheel drive on dry streets, you can leave the hubs locked in for some periods of time and just drive in 2 wheel until you need it.
