Afternoooon,

My 08 JK has been making a weird sound lately. To me, it sounds like it comes from the rear of the jeep and its a knocking sound. Sooo heres my issue:

It wont make the sound when coasting, or when in neutral.

Since the sound iv:
Changed oil
Changed rear diff oil
took rear driver side wheel off thinking maybe a wheel bearing but didn't seem like it was bad imo (Where i think sound is closest too)

I tried to record the sound as best as a I could, you can hear it best in the very beginning

Thanks -

Check your exhaust make sure it's not knocking the tub or anything. Also check your control arms make sure the joints haven't failed or need replacement.

when exactly is it making the sound. is it continuous while driving? only on left turns? right turns? straight? anytime you accelerate whether straight or while turning?
