With the rear wheels off the ground, manually turn the driveshaft to try and duplicate this issue to determine if the gear set in the transfer case or the pinion gear in the rear axle is the issue. If both are fine then look at the brakes, and caliper brackets for a possible cause for this.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris

I tested/explored all the above before emailing you. I still have no solution but I now suspect an abs issue. I've decided to have it towed to a garage.

Glad your getting it resolved. Sorry I was not able to help you figure this out prior to towing so I could earn a rating.
