Square_Eyes is on a distinguished road
The other day I was driving home and I hit a dip in the road that I have hit many times without having anything go wrong (can't avoid this dip it goes all the way across the road). For some reason or another after going in this dip at around 65 my rear end started to get a bad vibration and making a knocking sound, I checked my u joints and they all seem to be in ok shape, my thirdmember in my 9in already has a crack in the casing where the lower pinion bearing goes so not sure if something broke in that. When I take off now it makes a knocking noise and just doesn't feel "tight" anymore, like it's not catching right away and the same thing happens when I let off the gas and get back on it, it could be something else idk but I'm gonna tear it apart this week and see whats going on. Any opinions on what it might be?

Darkproximity- Sometimes I wonder if your jeep was assembled by 8 year olds with nail guns and a lot of caffeine
