Plantgirljeeper14 I have an 05 TJ. What could cause this problem? I have less 60 on her. Only had it off road twice. It's lifted 3"

Long arms. So you have a TJ or JK ? It could be a hub or u joint going out.

A proper steering does not need a steering damper all they do is hide issues.

jokerchief462 If you worked on the brakes look at the dust shields for evidence of rubbing. You may have to remove the calipers and rotors.

viking4949 I concur, probably just the front axle u joints. I just did mine as well. Grab the u joint and wiggle it back and forth, if you hear the clicking, or there is much movement, replace.

Redrider94 Check the u joints in the front axle yokes

Rattling sound coming from front driver wheel?!

Hey guys, new here. I've been having this rattling sound (kind of like a chatter) coming from my front left wheel. (at least that's where i think its coming from) Sounds the loudest there when i do slow drive bys. It only does it at slow speeds and goes away when i apply even the slightest amount of brakes. I thought it was something to do with the brakes of course so I took off all four wheels and checked all four brakes and everything looked fine and nothing seemed loose to cause rattling. The driver front tire also sounds like it has a nail or rock in the tread but I've checked, double checked, and triple checked the damn thing and it has nothing. This started after i got in a little accident and jumped a center median. I'm planning to start working on it in a few weeks after i get my bike fixed and running again and any directions on where to start would be great!
