2006 Unlimited Rubicon. A few days ago, I began noticing a distinct clicking noise while driving at low speeds (20 mph or less). There is also more vibration than usual (our mudders ride rough... working on getting money to replace them with A/Ts). I know our front track bar needs replacing, and we're going to replace some U-joints at the same time. I think the U-joints are what's causing that clicking noise... Am I correct? I'm looking to order all the parts tonight, but want to make sure I'm ordering the right ones.
Adjustable front track bar is pretty straight forward. I think I figured out what we should order. We're on a budget, but we do want to make sure we put quality parts on our LJ. Is the Rough Country Adjustable Track Bar
a decent enough one to use? I'm staying away from the similarly-priced Skycrapper one.
Oh, and is the rear track bar necessary? Someone seems to have ripped ours off... I think it was the track bar, anyway...
I found a couple of posts on U-joints and Jerry recommends the Spicer 5-760x for the axle. The cheapest price I've found so far is $23.90 each (not sure what shipping will cost). Is that a decent price? What's the down side of getting these u-joints
instead of the Spicer? Why does that one say it's good through 2004? Is there a different one I should be looking at? Do I only need to replace the two U-joints at the front axle, or should I go ahead and order other ones as well?? Argh, too many questions!
Thanks in advance for your time and advice. =)
