It happened one other time, can't find the service statement but they never had to do a major replacement but you never know. It just started again. I am bringing it in again. I would suggest you do the same
Differentials and transfer case in the '05 are different than the '00.
Lubed the lower steering bushings? No rack in an '00 model, so are you referring to the drag link, the tie-rod ends and the upper ball joints?
If your vehicle is running in AWD full-time, I would suggest that the transfercase is at issue.
