"creak" from rear end.

I did a quick search and couldn't find anything. But on to the problem. Mostly when I turn left there's a "creak" from the rear end. I haven't done any suspension or drive line mods sense I got the Jeep almost a year ago. Any ideas on where to start?


It has 3.5 inch lift, 33s, dana 35 rear. 90k on the keep no rear end work as far as I know before I got it. thanks guys!

Maybe control arm bushings needing replaced or lubricated?

Is the creak only while the weight is shifting or does it continue creaking for as long as you are turning. i.e. will it "creak" for 30 seconds if you drive in a circle?

If it's continuous i'd say wheel hub/bearing. If it's intermittent, I'd say track bar connection.

I'll take a look at the control arm bushings.

I will drive around in a circle and find out. There is no wheel play in either rear wheel if that helps. Would that eliminate the bearing issue?

I had a creaking, poping sound in my rear end (of my jeep) too. Had stock suspension. This occurred when backing straight and backing turning. Recently had a small lift done and the noise is gone. Did a little research and can't remember where I saw it, but I think it was the bushings in the shocks where the bar pins are. I read that after time those can wear out and result in some noise in the area of the bar pin. Did that make sense
