Ax15 downshift click
Hello all. Yesterday I did some wheeling at the local offroad park and found myself stuck in some mud. As I was trying to rock myself out, I heard a couple clicks (couldn't tell where they were coming from) but didn't think much of it. Anyway, while driving it today I noticed that I get a clicking noise whenever I downshift. The clicking seems to correspond to the speed of the driveshaft and seems to be coming from inside the tranny. Any ideas as to what this might be? I also have a squeaky u-joint from this trip, but I believe it is unrelated. I have a 97 4.0 4" lift for what it's worth. As always, thanks a ton for the help!

Also, you cannot hear the click when accelerating or when the clutch is pushed in

When you were stuck in the mud I assume you were using the clutch? You could have gotten some mud packed where it shouldn't be. You could try washing it out, may not help but couldn't hurt trying.
