Grinding felt when turning wheel all the way to left or right
 
This just started happening. When i turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or right and move i can feel like a grinding through the wheel. I checked the CV boots but there are no rips in them. What can this be? it almost feels like its hitting something but its not.

They are saying Check it to see if there is a problem.

I'd have it checked out by a dealer especially if the warranty is still in place. Can't hurt.

The reason I suggest this is because on the Jeep SRT8 (different transfer case btw), when you turn the wheel hard left/right and make a circle, if you get binding it's in the transfer case. This comes from a GURU who rebuilds these transfer cases. His recommendation is to replace the transfer case fluid. Again, have a dealer look at it, I'm not an expert -- just thought this sounded like an issue I read about on the Red Site.

I had similar symtoms you are describing in my 94 GC. My CV joints were bad.

I brought it to the dealer and they said nothing was wrong. I checked the cv boots and there is no rips or tears in the boots

Well, obviously the dealer is wrong, since you say there is a problem. Lol. My bad CV joints produced a clicking noise and felt like the wheels were going to fall off. Is it still happening, did they even take it for a drive at the dealer?
