Do you hav any suggestions on what I could check?

I have no check eng light or trans lights on
Expert:  Gary replied 3 months ago.

99 % of the times this binding is caused by low or dirty or the wrong transfercase fluid in the transfer case

of the front axles look good change the transfercase fluid and fill it with 2 quarts of AUTOTRAKII transfercase fluid

then drive it for 25 to 50 miles it should get better as the new fluid works into the clutches in the transfercase
