Slight Bind from Time to Time in 2 Wheel Drive on Hard Pavement

This is on a 2000 Jeep Cherokee with select-trac transfer case. Occasionally I'll get what seems to be a bind, or crow hop as we used call it, if I make a hard turn in 2 wheel drive on a hard surface like concrete or asphalt. This does not happen all the time and only seems to happen on a real sharp turning of the wheel. Has anyone else experienced this? If so what did you end up doing? Axle u-joints on a quick inspection do not appear to be bad. Open to any and all suggestions.
Thanks,
Bill

Check the drag link, and the ball joints.

Re: Slight Bind from Time to Time in 2 Wheel Drive on Hard Pavement

Those symptoms should make on suspect the axle shaft u-joints. Looking OK and being OK are not the same thing. Worn ball joints usually have unusual movement when inspected, or more often show up as unusual tire wear.

^^ this. Axle shaft u-joints. They are always moving with the front tires and steering wheel regardless of 2wd, 4wd selected on the transfer case.
