OK, new Jeep owner here (< 3 weeks) My 2007 Jeep X is clicking like crazy...thinking it's the rear drive shaft CV joint (rzeppa?) but I'm not sure. It sounds like both ends of the rear driveshaft but I guess it could be the TC side of the front??
I also have the left front u-joint clunking a little. I jusr had to replace the rear rotors and pads. Just empty every pocket alright...anyway.
What are my options? Looking online it looks like rebuilding the stock joints will cost as much as a new replacement stock driveshaft, which looks like will cost as much as a new driveshaft with U-joints (give or take a few bucks)
OK, due to my work schedule this week I took my Jeep to a buddy to look at. He is pretty knowledgable in Jeeps but mostly CJs, YJs and TJs. It turns out there was grease spatter at the EC end of the rear driveshaft. He removed thr driveshaft and said the bearings in the TC and rear end are toast. He doesn't have the tool to pull them so it is going to another guy tomorrow. Bummer.
Yes, it has a TeraFlex lift kit on it and 1" body spacers. I'm not sure what size lift since it was on there when I bought the Jeep from a small car lot. I can measure and compare it to my buddy's wife's stock '07? Is there another way to tell?
Mine is the black one on the far right next to a stock '07. I'm on 35s
