Help needed clanking when turning
 
I have a 2006 Rubicon and when I make slow turns I can hear something underneath clanking as I make the turn. Anyone know what it might be? Help! Thanks.

Front axle u-joints maybe,
Do you feel any binding/lurching when this happens?
Kind of like driving & turning on pavement in 4 wheel drive.

very little binding / lurching if any. It mostly just clanks. :whistling: Any particular brand you'd reccommend for u joints?

If you find that the front axle joint is your problem, then a good replacement would be, Dana Spicer 5-760x
