No more clunks and no more rear wheel ticking...
 
Yesterday I was able to identify and fix the notorious "clunk" from the front axle isolator bushings and also repair my rear driver side e brake shoes that occasionally were causing a mysterious tick noise at low speeds. The actual brake material had come off the metal shoes and were just bouncing around inside the rotor... But if it wasn't for this forum and the wealth of knowledge I think finding and isolating my problems would have taken a lot longer. So just saying thanks :D

when were you getting the clunk in the front? turning? bumps?

Is this clunk when going through PRND? Mine is so bad sometimes depending on the angle im parked. I was thinking about trying to fix it this week!

I would get the "clunk" in the front at very low speed tight turns and when shifting between park reverse and drive. I did the work on a lift and with a helping hand so it wasn't too hard just a little lengthy.

Give it a shot...but before you rip anything apart take off the skidplate and see if its the 2 bushings on the differential #14(roughly $30 a piece from the stealer) or the bracket #6 ($100 from the stealer and the whole bracket assembly comes as one piece). The reason I say this is because #6 is back ordered to hell right now from jeep.

Awesome, thanks for the exploded view i'm sure that will help out! How will I know if it's the 2 bushings? or the bracket?

Some of the bushings are in such bad shape you may just be able to see that the center has tore completely out from it. If that isn't the case just checks for cracks in them (A flashlight helps). The only tough one that will be hard to see without dropping the diff is the one on the top of the pumpkin. If the other 2 bushings look good then you know that one is the culprit. My suggestion is just grab 2 #14's and if you don't need one of them just return it.

Yeah, but I'm also going to look for #6 too. Maybe it will be easier to find in Canada. Thanks for all the tips, I appreciate it! +rep for you!!
