Good evening, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Cadillac master technician, and I would be happy to assist you with this today.

As you have discovered, what you are experiencing is a common concern on these models. It is not something to be very concerned about, as it will not affect much. The gears bind up a bit under a load and that is when it will shudder/chatter. If it is something that annoys you then something we have found to work well is to flush/fill the transfer case with new fluid, as well as adding some friction additive in with it.
