Play in front suspension...is it right?? *VIDEO*

I notice a knock/clank noise when I hit a bump that sounds like something up front is loose. I checked everything and this is the only thing that I could find that has any play in it. Is there supposed to be this much play in these parts?? Also, I'm pretty positive the straight rod like part that goes all the way across between the steering knuckles is the tierod, whats the name of the first part I show that goes from behind the wheel to the pitman arm? I'm always trying to learn so please excuse the ignorance, I really appreciate the feedback I get from you all.

Sway Bar End Links, Mine are bad and make a popping / thunking noise when the jeep rocks back and forth.


Look at this pic, on the right side top where that bolt goes through the black bar, the sock end links have a hemispherical joint under a rubber cover that wears out. $25-$35 for aftermarket replacements, or upgrade to disconnects like pictured or something simmilar.


Your video is just gear lash + wear, yup normal.

I feel better, thanks. I'll either replace the swaybar links or upgrade them discos and see if that fixes it.
