So here is my dilemma. I have a 2001 RR 4.6L SE, I just replaced the upper and lower ball joints. It only happens when I make right hand turns but the drivers side front tire seems to bind up. It feels like a coil spring is twisting and about to pop. It does slow the vehicle down quickly to a stop, then you feel like a release and it starts to speed back up. It seems to drive just fine straight and left hand turns. I removed the front calipers and found that the drivers side pistons where bad. I replaced both front calipers and pads so see if it would fix the issue but it is still doing it. I am at a total loss I cannot see anything under that would cause the issue and I have not been able to catch it in the act. Previous repairs that I have done. Replaced the Transfer Case, Calipers / Pads, Ball Joints, Drag Links, U joints, Drive lines I am in need of different opinions as to the culprit.

Sounds like the viscous on your gearbox has gone, feels like the brake binds then lets go, if you take the front prop off if won’t do it, but needs the transfer box changed really.It will only get worse, then becomes dangerous to drive, will vibrate badly aswell.

did you kink or twist the left front brake hose?. the description is somewhat vague but being it only happens on the wheel on which you worked, leads me to think something is awry in assembly.

The problem turned out to be the speed sensor worked its way out to far. Pushed back in and worked just fine. I ended up replacing the set with OEM. Never! Never! due after market.
