find a carpark somewhere out the way try putting car on full lock and pull away leave windows down, if car feels like it grabs wheels and clicks and feels held, if does then maybe centre diff plates have worn out common, also the oil can get old and contaminated and effect the slip properties and cause a difference in drive line that causes windup in drive line,, i bought a 4x4 a little while ago had new gearbox in it and owner had it back to garage a number of times and then decided to just get rid, hmm turned out some muppet had put wrong oil in middle diff and effected the slip on the plates, so oil can make a big. now it drives like a new car, my point is when you know that all the stuff like oils and levels are all good then can work backwards off that
