Allstar Realtor My 99 was doing it as well. I took the rear dif cover off and the smell was very strong. The oil was very thick and very black. I think the level was low as well, but didn't measure what came out. The gears from what I could tell were fine. I didn't see any broken teeth or anything. Put it back together and seemed fine last night. I did feel a little pop today though. Not sure what to check next. The rear brakes & drums are new as well. E-brake getting caught up??

billyd0528 mine was doing the same thing, and i thought ujoint or bearing and what not but it actually turned out to be my spider gears inside my axle, they were broken and the teeth would catch on the turns because of the inside pressure, the only bad part is you have to open it up to check if that was it. take it to an offroad shop maybe and have them check it out is only like 40 bucks, and with the teeth like that the pressure could break your axle, better to be safe than sorry

gbuck27 Thanks for the replies. Now I have a better idea on where to get started. I will post if I find out what exactly is causing it. Thanks again.

TJspeed My 2000 does that. Sounds like a U-Joint popping. But all my U-Joints are just fine

Sounds like it could be a bad control arm bushing since it happens when accelerating straight forward. Though really, any bad bushing could cause that type of sound.

neverfastenough1 Sounds like track bar or ujoint on axle.

Beaker541 Don't know why turning would make it happen though

Beaker541 I have been messing with my e-brake over the last week and now I'm having problems with the cable slipping off the connection to the back of the caliber area.. I just got the same sound twice yesterday.. I am getting ebrake situation fixed today so ill keep u posted if I still hear it after .. Sound could be the cable grabbing that latch and slipping off after vehicle rocks if tha makes sence..

JRIEDY85 mine does the same thing. sounds like its coming from the rear passenger side on mine though.

I just bought a 2004 wrangler unlimited. When I am accelerating from a stopped position or making a sharp turn, I hear a torqued pop sound coming from the area of the tires. Anybody have any idea what this could be?
