Noise in rear end
 
2006 Wrangler Sport, 4.0, auto..
105 k miles
I have a popping noise in the rear end when I turn a corner, I know I have a little play in the rear wheels ..... in and out motion. Mechanic at the shop said that was normal.. (I don't think so) sounds like clunk - clunk. ......
any ideas???

What direction is "in and out"? Like laterally or front to back?

Check control arms and track bar first. Mounts, bushings, bolts, etc for play.

Sway bar loose? Try that. If its loose tighten it up and it should fix the problem

Pop the cover and check the gears.

My 06 was doing this too. After driving for a short distance & make a tight turn it started popping. Took differential cover off & everything looked fine. Refilled it with valvolene rear end lube & no more popping. Only mine started doing this at about 25,000 miles.

IN and Out.. pull out on wheel when raised off the ground a then push in.
moves ever so little.. but enough i think for the metal on metal sound of clunk-clunk

depending if you have a locker and what type this may be normal while going around corners.

I had a very similar sound/issue. Ended up being a crapped out shock sticking. When I would turn, or have a noticeable weight shift, I would hear/feel it. I hope it is something silly and easy for you as well.

I can feel it, and hear it too...... think I'll replace the shocks...... can't hurt with 105 K miles on it gotta be pretty much worn out..
