    Some binding in the front end is normal when in fwd.& the wheel is turned sharpbut if it is really bad you may want to check the u-joints in the front axle. This can be done by jacking up the front axle .Leave the transfercase in 2wd.& lock in one hub at a time & then turn the wheel all the way left or right. Then turn the tire that you locked the hub in on by hand. It should turn fairly easy.If the u-joint is bad it may not even make a full revelotion or it will be really hard to do so. Then unlock that hub & do the same thing on the other side. Hope this helps.
