Hey y'all. So I have a 1998 Sahara on 4.5" lift on 33" Duratrac MTs. I was driving around the other night and all of the sudden I went to make a left turn and the jeep started makings harsh popping noise which sounded and felt like it was coming from rear of the jeep. Any suggestions?

Take a look at your u-joints. If there's not play I'd pull your rear diff cover & inspect your gears.

I checked u-joints and drive shafts and they have slack/ wiggle room in them. Like I can twist the driveshaft and it moves but the tires don't move; if that makes sense
