Front end noise
So I have a noise in my front end when I get on the beach in 4wd on the passenger side it's like a clucking sound would this be the u-joint or more? My leafs and shocks are not in good shape but they look okay and it's only in 4wd any help would be awesome

inspect your u joints, ball joints, hub bearing

Sounds like a u joint just look behind the wheel and wiggle the axle shaft u joints to see if there is any play, next check your ball joints for play by pulling and pushing on the front tire to see if there is any play and last check the unit bearing by pulling off the tire and breaks

I just jacked it up and it has about a 1/4 inch of play top and bottom but it's not on the ball joints is that normal or would this point to my Hun being bad?

Hmmm I would check it, usually up and down play is your ball joints

U-joint seems solid just did my axle seal so I replaced it less then 1000 miles ago
