What the H*LL?!

When I apply the brakes with a medium to heavy foot, there is a clanging noise. Sounds like it is in the drive train. I harder I hit brakes the worse the noise.

88YJ, 258, 5 speed, 31's

Any ideas? I am wondering if it is something in the bell housing.......

Front/back? maybe its bad/cracked rotor or worn out pads or something of that kind? Do YJs have drums or disks or both? Maybe bad bearings so when you brake you put more pressure on it? I doesnt click when accelerating?

No clicking that I can hear. Definitely a clanging, repeated, something loose sound. going to pull tires, check brakes, check mounts, search for loose bolts, etc., today.....

The tranny is mounted to the skid plate. If I remove the skid plate and replace tranny mount, what/how do I adjust the tranny? If that is a bad ?, I will go ahead and apologize now.

I may need Tiny to bring her tools over and help me on this one!!! ;-)

if i'm correct the tranny is adjusted forward and backwards acording to the motor mount hight. The more mount lift the more the tranny has to come forward to make up for the height. The tranny mount bolts should be the 4 screws in the center of the tranny skid and they should automatically align so preatty much tighten the skid plate and then tighten the 4 tranny nuts and call it done.
