Ok.. I have two issues going on with my TJ. I donít know if they are related or not. Iím thinking they may be.
First I have a clanking, first started when I pressed the pedal on the right a bit hard from a standstill when I was backing up, it would do it again when I went forward. Then is started doing it when I would back up normally and go forward again. Then is was to the point it was doing it when I started and stopped during normal driving.
The second issue a wobble when I brake. The thing thatís driving me crazy
is that it is intermittent. and the severity of it depends on the speed I'm going when I start braking, the faster I'm going when I start braking the worse it is, when it happens. Some times there is nothing at all and it brakes smooth as silk I've been reading the treads for about 3 hours now looking for someone with the same problem I have, haven't found it yet. Everything I've been reading on DW is it happens and XX to XX speed. Note if I downshift and use the motor to assist stopping it doesn't happen.
I've had the tires balanced, rotated and replaced. No difference. Some one suggested it was my rotors, but if it was them, wouldnít happen every time I stopped.
I'm going to check the u-joints after reading some posts. As the seems to be a common issue and they are easy to check.
I bought my about two and a half years ago. I have a 04 Rubicon. No lift everything is stock. This problem started about 6 months ago.
