Steering click feel at low speed, normal with 4wd?

I own a 2011 overland summit hemi 4wd, 26000 miles. When steering sharply at slow speed like when parking, i feel some kind of small click in the steering wheel from time to time. Had it checked by the deeler who said there's no issue...this is how the new 4wd feels. No binding or anything wrong atbhigher speeds. Does anyone have this experience? Love everthing else on the car, really awesome on all aspects. Thank you !

Re: Steering click feel at low speed, normal with 4wd?

Could be a lot of things. Does it happen more in one direction than another? Mine is fine, no clicks, but I do recall reading about some with steering shaft issues, but that was more of a thud than a click.

There is a TSB to replaced the intermediate steering shaft because of a thud in the steering wheel at low speed.

Could be a small turn signal shut-off (or something like that) plastic tab or tabs. I had to get them replaced in my 2005 Grand Cherokee two or three times.
