I was wondering what some of your thoughts were regarding my problem. Whenever I begin to take off or stop I hear a weird clicking/clank noise coming from my front passenger side tire or even when I知 just at a steady 5mph. I知 not really sure if continues at higher speeds but I知 unable to hear it if it does. Any ideas on what this is? And if it痴 an expensive or easy fix up? Thanks!
**I have 33 inch tires and a 4 inch lift if that may play a part in it.

Do you have quick disconnects on your sway bar? Certain brands do that.

try climbing under your rig and seeing if anything is loose. You can even go around and make sure everything is tight.

Are you positive it is comming from the front pass side?

Pretty sure, I just got done driving and it doesn’t seem to start until after I use the breaks a little, could it be something with the break hub?

Broken or loose brake pad/s, if the sounds go away when the brakes are applied. Time to take the wheel off & take a look see..........

Thanks guy’s, I’m finally getting my spiders gears re-placed so I’ll have them take a look at it, and if it is the u-joint or broken/lose break pad is that a minor repair? Thanks.

its probably your catalytic converter, when it is making the noise at idle, if it does, then get underneath the jeep, the cat is just above and inside the Tcase skid plate, give it a whack with a rubber mallet or something of the like and if it stops than thats your problem
