Default Four Wheel Drive Acting Up

I have noticed last night when i put my truck in four wheel and took a tight turn my truck rocks like something is stuck, my tires dont rub at all and its manual hubs not vacume hubs either. Any help would be nice i tryed puting it in reverse and going about 100 ft to try and fix it but i got nothing so far.

are you on dry pavement when it does that? if so its your drivetrain binding and every 4wd truck will do that when you make a turn sharp on a surface that doesnt allow your wheels to slip a little. thats why youre never supposed to use 4wd on dry or even wet pavement or hard surfaces

ok that makes sense, now that being said if thats the problem will it do it off road? Im not the most 4x4 tech savy when it comes to this, ive only had two of them and my last one was a dodge and the transmission went before i even took it off road.

it shouldnt be an issue offroad because dirt/ mud/ sand will allow the tires to break traction and slip a little. ive never had mine bind at all offroad.
