Need Help or Advice Please!!!

Hi guys,

My 98 tj teeters when it turns at low speed i.e. u-turns, turing into a parking space, etc. while it's in 4 wheel drive mode. Is that normal? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I don't know if that's a bad thing........I'm more curious as to why you'd have it in 4wd in u-turns and parking?? it's not a good idea to drive with it in 4wd unless youre wheeling, you'll mess up the transfer case.

Yes, That's normal. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Like Jason said you'll tear up your transfer case running around in 4WD on hard surfaces, Your drive line binding up is what's giving the "Teetering Feeling" = NOT GOOD!!! [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Yep, completely normal. Your tires are trying to turn at the same rate while covering different distances.

Re: Need Help or Advice Please!!!

Thank all of you for all the good advices. Is it a good idea to use 4wd on pavement when it rains heavily? Does these Jeeps need to be on 4wd everyonce in a while for lubrication purposes? Sorry if I ask too many questions. Any advices would be appreciated.

The TJ front driveshaft is always turning with the tires. It is always keeping things lubricated. There really is no reason to use 4wd on dry paved surfaces. You might want to on wet roads when starting on inclines but shift back to 2wd when you get clear of the intersection.
