Front drive shaft seems to be bound up. Took it out and it runs and drives like

(2002 Mercury Mountaineer)
Seems to not want to back up and really got to push it to move. And when u turn to go forward it dont want to move Ethier. So i took the front drive shaft out and it moves and runs just like new
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Better when i took front drive shaft out
