yesterday i was coming home from work and herd a snap when i went over a bump got home and coolant was dripping all over. at first it looked like the lower radiator hose but i replaced it and it still leaked. it drips down the lower hose and on to the diff. I think its the water pump any ideas?

check around the water pump. Can't tell you what the snap was, but if it's the WP leaking, it'd probably be coming out from behind the pulley. Might be hard to see without a mirror. I'd top it off with some water, fire it up, and see if you can see it spraying anywhere. Sounds like more leaking than you standard WP bushing going out. Good luck and let us know.
