Weird stutter during low speed turns

Need help diagnosing a problem during low speed turns (both braking and accelerating). Car feels like it is stuttering and makes a god awful sound (to me anyways!). Brakes and rotors have already been redone and checked out. The issue is not in the tires or wheels themselves but perhaps in the all-wheel drive or transmission? It only happens when steering wheel is turned. Any ideas???

Sorry if I don't say it the right way in English, but I had the same issue. I just put little more oil in reductor (X-drive) and everything was ok.

Stutter or shudder are the common terms. It is usually associated with the transfer case, but I have read no causal explanation. At low parking speeds the t-clutch is supposed to be open for ease of steering. Proper TC lubricant, expensive, must be used and at the right level.
