Clicking noise under driver side! Help!
 
Help! We went to Sedona over Memorial Day weekend, and ran a total of eight trails!! Five of which were rated difficult. At some point on the last day or jeeping, we started to hear a clunking/clicking noise coming from the driver side. Our Jeep got us home, but the noise is random, and sometimes is more apparent when we brake, or turn the steering wheel! Sway bars look fine, so it might be related to steering, brakes, joints, etc. Any advice would be appreciated!!

Check the u-joint. Sometimes you can see or feel movement just by placing your hand over the joint. Grab the tire and push/pull.

The noise was getting louder so I took it to the dealership shop, also because there is only 5,000 miles on my jeep!! They said the left sway bar link bushing nut was loose, and they tightened it. Also, the left rear shock had to be replaced, which is surprising seeing how my Jeep is just a baby! Basically replacing a new shock. Thanks for your help.

I have some play in the sway bar end link. Not where the rubber is but to the right, in between the nuts. The connector clanks when it bounces up and down. Think it's just needs to be torqued down more? Anyone know the lb. for that?

50 I believe. They're prob worn. Just replace them, links are cheap.

Kind of still on topic but my wife has a new Chrysler T/C and we had to have the rear shocks replaced twice within the first 4k miles. This last set seems to be holding up. Mopar having a problem with socks?

Mine did that it was a loose track bar upper bolt

oddly enough, our 20-year old Volvo developed a similar click/clunk sound recently....

it proved to be a rear shock nut somehow getting loose & allowing a bit of undesirable movement.

Yeah it was just loose for me. Tightened it about an hour ago. All good!
