Front End Noise

Hi there! Iam new to the Wrangler world so maybe this is just the way it is. I just bought a 2002 Sport with 47,000 miles on it and sometimes when I hit a bump I can hear a front end noise mostly on the right front. Is this just the way the suspension is, or is there something that I should look for? With these larger bumps my CD player will skip too, is this common also? Thanks, Scooby

I remember when all CD players did that. My first vehicle had an awesome pioneer 8 track mounted under the dash. It NEVER skipped!!
To all who serve, Thank You.

My 02 is like that with the cd player, I sured up the back with a steel strap but it still does it. I run a rancho suspension so my jeep rides pretty rough. The noise could be many things, i even had a clunking in my left front that turned out to a driied up chunk of mud on top of the spring tower.
