For 3 bills, they installed my rear upper link arm and ball joint, and bled the brakes while they were at it.
Where did you buy your ball joint and control arm? Mine's making a clunk whenever I go over bumps (mostly driver's side bumps) and I'm thinking I need to replace it.

Re: The typical rear-end "thunk"

I just shopped the web for the cheapest price. I ended up finding it cheapest at 4wdtruck.com. I think Quadratec.com had it too for almost the same price.

Double check everything back there first. I ended up having 2 "thunks". One was the rear sway that needed a washer on either side (aftermarket sway bar) and the other thunk was coming from the rear ball joint. Get under it and shake the hell out of the shocks and the rear sway. If those are all tight, then chances are, you're do for a new ball joint.

Off topic, but I ADORE your Jeep!
