Recently when I make a left hand turn, the tire seems to skip, and the rig shudders. I took off the front axle , thinking that was it, but didn't help. I've got Detroit lockers front and back, is that the issue?
make sure your lockers are diengaging. Even if its out of 4wd, if they are locked, your tires will skip on corners. Also check your wheel hubs. Shoot, I'd jack up the front and check everything. Tie rods, ball joints, etc... And, with both front tires off the ground, when you spin 1 the other should either not move or spin in the opposite direction. If you spin one forward and the other goes forward as well, your lockers are not disengaging.
