Unhappy What the heck can it be?????

Ok, I've had this popping noise coming from the back of my 1999 Jeep Wrangler for some time now. It doesn't do it all the time, just as the Jeep warms up and is driven for a while it starts, especially when driving slow.

I have replaced the rear brakes and calipers, shock absorbers and today (yes, all day) replaced the ujoints in the back. Still the popping! Could it be the rear wheel bearings.

So, I thought I may post before replacing every part on the dang thing and see if anyone else has had any experience with this problem.

Welcome....

Is your jeep lifted?

I had the same problem too until I found out that it was my rear shocks relocation brackets. They were not tighten down enough. I removed it and put them back in with some loctite and problem solved.

No, it's not lifted....it's really prominent when I turn to the left slowly if that makes a difference.

Sounds like wheel bearings especially if you hear it prominently when you turn slowly. My Pontiac Montana literally MOANED everytime I would turn it and that's what the issue turned out to be.
