How does it drive in 4x4? should be jerky and making noise even going straight in 4x if the CVs are causing it to bind. Should but not always.
You could also leave it in 2wd, lift the front, and try to turn the wheels and CVs to see what/where is binding. If it's the CVs it'll get harder to spin the shafts the greater the articulation angle. Or you'll feel it binding/moving/etc.
