    sounds like it might need a control arm, pitman arm, and/or tie rods a good front end shop can tell you for sure.

    Is it in 4x4, or is the front diff engaging in error?

    I would take it back to the shop that did the alignment then and see if it's correct, otherwise only thing I can think of is somehow the front differential is out of whack

    That I did not know. Old dog, new tricks. I probably won't remember it, though.

    Not sure how the AWD in these works, but I know the previous vehicles I've owned that were AWD, when put in a hard near-lock turn under power would skip a little and that was considered perfectly normal. My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee did this quite a bit on dry stuff, but it was full time 4WD. Not sure about the engineering differences.

    I'd still want to get that checked out though, especially if it's NEW behavior and it didn't always skip a little in a steep turn. Feel free to completely disregard this as it's just my two cents.

    Have you had the transfer case services recently and was the correct fluid used?
