    Without hearing it difficult to say mate...

    Possible wheel bearing issue.

    Have you checked if anything is fouling the wheel/tyre in the wheel arch?

    If none of these then possibly worth checking the wheel fitment, tyre wear, springs etc.

    Hope this helps...

    ive had 4wd jeeps before and it feels like when you put one on full lock and set off it feels weird like its struggling to drive?

    Sounds like it could be a quattro drivetrain type fault then.

    What's the mileage?

    Could possibly be a CV joint wear issue!?
