2004 Polaris Sportsman 500 - stuck in 4wd

I have noticed that this machine doesn't come out of 4wd. I can sometimes feel wheel wobble when letting off the gas. Is there anything I should look for or any way to fix this without replacing the front diff?

    the plastic cage in the front diff is probably broke

    you can buy an aftermarket aluminum cage that is stronger than the factory plactic one
