new member and new TJ owner

ok hello all i just recently bought a 97 wrangler for my winter vehical i dont realy know a lot about jeeps i work at a dealer but jeeps are a new thing i mostly do a lot to my 95 camaro but this jeeps is cool 6 in lift 35in mickey thompsons mtx i think i will post pics later 97 5speed 53xxx 5,000 the only problem is when you drive it forward no noise but when you turn omg one h*ll of a popping noise like the rear end is going to fall out well i like to think as myself of a little bit of a tech so i think it is spider gears it doesnt have a limited slip,dana35,with ABS and 3.07 gear ratio which is a highway gear and very rare which is what im told ??? i dont know help !!!

When you turn, you hear a popping noise from the rear? Does sound like spider gears, but I'm sure someone on here will know a little bit more than me.... welcome to the forum, it is a great place!!
