Hello all.

I have been experiencing a knocking in my steering when making slow full-lock turns in either direction. Doesn't really make a noise but i can feel it easily through the steering wheel. Otherwise my jeep feels fine, at speed it tracks great and I don't feel anything when cornering above 10 mph or so.

This weekend I'm going to get underneath and check out the steering and suspension but if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!

If it helps I have an almost entirely stock front with the exception of 31" duratracs and zone sway bar disconnects. I recently fixed a case of death wobble with a new poly track bar bushing and the new tires. The axle is the unlocked D30.

Thanks in advance!

Loose wheel comes to mind but I'm sure you checked those.

Could be your front end u-joints. When they go bad you usually dont notice unless your turning at full lock. The symptoms match what your describing. They are very easy to change out as well.

Thanks Ryman. From scouring other posts I'm leaning towards u-joints too.
