Default CLUNK AFTER STOPPING

I have had this problem for awhile, After I come to a complete stop I feel and hear a clunk from the rear of my XJ. Has anyone had this problem? if so what was done to fix it.

Thanks.... [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Sounds like maybe a bushing. Maybe.

Mine does it too. I figured it was axle wrap due to the stupid 3in. blocks. [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img]

That noise has been atributed to everything from the brakes to the diff. We have a radio show here in MD on the weekends hosted by mechanic Pat Goss (sp?). He says the clunk is the sound of your slip yoke. He claims shaft length changes during braking due to nose dive. He says regular greasing of your slip yoke will fix it. I tried it and it worked.... See what you guys think.

i agree, could be anything from the t-case to the axles and anything in between....

have you tried to put the rear up on blocks and see if you can determine where the noise is coming from....

try to have someone turn the rear wheels back and forth to see if the noise is driveline or axle related,, at least then you can find the slippage. is it one wheel or both is it only when you turn the driveline or the axle or both??? if its not there, then a bearing or bushing??? check your axles for play??

how's the diff? has it been inspected lately for wear? couldn't hurt to change the diff fluid while your in there.

can you turn the driveline without the diff engaging within a 1/4 turn?? how's the spider teeth in the diff??

hopefully this 'ill help w/ narrowing it down....

by the way, is it an auto or a stick??? possibly a tranny issue if its an auto.... my mom's car, a 92 chrysler, had two auto's replaced in it in the last 5 years, a bad design and known problem with chrysler... HUGE clunking sound slowing down from 10- 0 mph. also had an occasional clunk declerating between 2nd and 1st gear.. i know------- way off the subject, but you never know..

hey, you should update your info for your jeep... it would help people help you...

I think the best thing is to take off the gas cap and drive a new Jeep under it... [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]

Thanks for the input, I will check it over this weekend.
