Good Morning TJ Friends -
I am baffled, and hopefully you can help.... I have a 2001 Wrangler with a 5" lift that clicks only while turning. It is a constant click click click in 2WD and 4WD.
I replaced both front U-Joints using a 6 ton shop press. The old U-Joints were shot, so I thought I conqured the problem, however - nope, it still clicked. I then replaced both left and right axle ends - Still clicks. The clicking seems to only be coming from the left front wheel. Both left and right wheel bearings are in great shape. I even replaced the sway disconnects (bushings were worn) with higher quality Rubicon Express quick disconnects.
The clicking happens with and without being under torque. If I am coasting and turn, it clicks, and even sounds like it is binding. It is bizarre. I am mechanically savvy, and have never been this mystified over what it could be... Any help is WAAAAY appreciated...
