So I have only noticed this in the snow.  Since I don't do much of it but when I a wot turning in the snow I'll get a chatter on the front tire that is on the side being turned to if that makes sense.  It kinda hops and will sometimes make a clank. And only does it I think in a sharp turn in that moment.  My knuckles sit very close to 0 degrees if that matters.

If you got U joint axles in the steering knuckles, you're gonna have crow hop.

it's like a driveshaft being our of phase. Except its the tires that are speeding up/slowing down with each rotation

Drive shaft velocity


this video explains it the best, and you can hear the speed differences

Oh funny I didnt know it was called crow hop.  I just wanted to make sure I didnt have another issue.  I have been happy with my link geometery.  So I wasnt sure what it was.

The vid did a good job,  It probably doesnt help that I have the high clearance 40 spline shafts so I get close to 50 deg of steering.
