Hi everyone,
I have a 2005 GC quadra trac and in the morning, it makes a noise, kind a a clicking and vibrating when pulling out of the driveway or a parking spot and turning the wheel.
It happens both going forward and reverse and also if you turn left or right.
This continues for awhile and a few stop sign turns etc but eventually goes away after driving for a bit.
After arriving home, it does not do it turning into the driveway or backing out again after having driven for a while.
I'm thinking something isn't getting lubricated well? and gravity is draining it out after sitting?
Bearing maybe?
any help of where to start would be greatly appreciated.
The wife drove it today and came in the house complaining about it...... LOL

Possibly the cold oil in the LSD diffs is declutching the clutch packs? But not when warm.
Have you checked diff oil quality, level and is correct viscosity for your ambient temperature?

check all your front drive and axle shafts for wear or dry joints but would suspect the front CV joints between the transfer case and front axle have gone dry or starting to wear out.
Only other cause would be worn or incorrect transfer box oil, or low axle oil levels
