He stated " driving under 30 mph and turning, can feel binding in steering wheel and pulsing in brake pedal". Stated they never put vehicle in 4×4 so the problem is not related to 4×4 engagement. – Road tested further in the manner outlined by customer and still unable to duplicate concern. – Inspect 4×4 operation and verified working in all ranges. Also verified disengaging into 2wd. Checked "IWE" system for vacuum leaks, none found.
