Default Binding on turns ?

Hi guy and girls i am having an issue with my ram qc 1500 when i take low speed turns the stiering wheel feels like it is rubbing/binding up on me. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the lower ball joints and said that it was all fixed well when i was driving to work this morning it started doing it again. does any on here know what else it could be? Thanks for the help.

Is your 4x4 or front axle locking in some how ? My front axle locks in by a vacuum switch on top of the transfer case . Maybe you have something going on there . Make sure your transfer case is disengaged completely .

Know I wouldn't think so . Next time it does it , if you have a friend or family member with ya , have them get in and move the truck straight forward. Your gonna have to pay close attention and see if the driveshaft from the transfer case to the front rear is turning . Still sounds to me like the front axle is locking in . Just so you know what I'm talking about . Take your truck put it in 4x4 high . Go from a dead stop and turn to the right you'll feel the binding feeling I think your talking about . Be careful , I'm not a believer in making turns on dry pavement when in 4x4 . So do it easily , probably in a open parking lot would be excellent . Let me know if thats what your feeling . Talk to ya soon . Tom

I have a 2011 Ram Laramie and I just posted the same problem When I am turning right or left at very low speed like pulling in to a parking spot I get a vibration or better description a rubbing feeling of tires in front. Did you ever find out what the problem was?
