Whats that noise?

I have been hearing a noise as I back in and out of my driveway coming from the front passenger suspension. When I go over the curb at the end of the driveway, I hear a loud click. Balljoint?

I had the balljoint on my last jeep break and like you, I heard a noise every time I backed out the driveway or hit a bump. But it wasn't just a loud click, it was like a loud "pop" and you could actually feel it.

If that sounds like the problem, get a buddy to watch you back out the drive way and see if its the balljoint that is loose/popped out. You could also try standing on your running boards (if you have them) and rocking the jeep back and forth, too.

rock it back and forth and if I hear that clicking noise, it would be safe to say its the ball joint?
