I just replaced the whole front end on this car. New control arms and all tie rod ends. Get it down on the ground for a test drive and notice what seems like binding in the drive line. Have not found anything obvious. Drove around the block and there's all kinds of grinding, binding, and brings the car to a halt if you just let it idle and roll. It does not do it all the time. I haven't been able to trigger it. And goes away the faster you roll. Does it when the trans is in N at a roll. I'm thinking it's the PTU coincidentally letting go. As far as I know the fluid has never been changed.

Is there a sure fire way to make sure it's the PTU/PTO before I pull the trigger and order a new one?

All of this started with a hard steering issue. Thinking that might be the universal on the steering shaft...
