    Front wheel hop/wobble

    Whenever I drive in 4WD and get on it at all with the front wheels turned, my wheels wobble. I am thinking it is the U joint in bind. If that is what it is, how would I go about fixing it? Clearance the yokes for more angle? Or is it something I haven't thought about? Thanks
