Suspension problems ?

I have a 98 jeep Grand Cherokee 2 wheel drive. Whenever I go over popthoels or holes in the ground I hear a thumping sound whenever I go over them it's very annoying. Dosent make a sound while in park or while at a stop light or at acceleration, or on turns, only on holes or dips in the road it's at the front end by the way? Please give me a helping hand ?


Thank you:

Re: Suspension problems ?

Have someone turn the steering rapidly back & forth lock to lock and look for loose tie rod ends.

Re: Suspension problems ?

I'd say ball joints also. Have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth a few inches and look/listen for anything that is loose.
