Hi All, Im the new owner of a '02 Jeep GC Larado sport 4x4 with the 4.0.
While driving i hear a loud clunking sound as if something is hitting the bottom of the jeep. It is something loose or broken, and not the drive shaft or loose exaust (but it kind sounds like that) seems to eminate fron near the front under the seats or possibly the engine compartments. I've checked the drive shaft, exaust, engine, transmission mouts, but nothing seems to be loose. It happens whenever i hit a bump or rough patch of road. Any ideas what it might be?
Also, there is some kind of bracket, with a rubber bushing that looks as though it might have been connected to the OEM exaust andbolted to the side/top of the tranny pan. It must be there for something? its loose and dangeling but not big enough to cause the noise i hear. Any ideas?
