could it be a front driveshaft going bad?

on my moms 4.0 explorrer we had a problem similar to that and it ended up being that we had new tires on the back and almost bald ones on the front. this made a big difference in the size of the tires (about 1.5 inches every revolution) and the transfer case could not make up the difference all the time.

just something to think about....

Tire out of balance, tire with belt sepperating?? Try rotating the tires & see if it changes.

These are difficult symptoms to diag without seeing and hearing yourself so very descriptive info is needed. Are the tires showing any unusual wear. Is there side to side vibration or up and down. What do you feel in the steering wheel. what condition is the shock, spring, sway bar bushings. Being it is 4x4, be sure the wheel locks are assembled correctly and not that that one wheel is engaged. by replacing a bad bearing may have fixed the problem but assembling the wheel lock incorrectly may have created a new but similar problem. Anything is possible. Lets not forget Murphy and his law!
