2 questions HELP!!

I just got a 95 Wrangler and changed the hell out of it so far. Not anything to the suspension. Just some mud 31's. The problems started after a day of playin in the mudd. The first problem is a poping in my right rear. When my back axle flex a little bit (like going over a speedbump at an angle) there is a pop. The other is when my jeep is cold and I start it up and put it in drive, there is violent shaking. It feels like it is coming from thedriveline, but not sure. Its even more heavy in reverse. When I get up to around 20 mph it goes away. Once driving past 20 mph for a while it goes away when I am at slow speeds. WHAT ARE THESE PROBLEMS?

Re: 2 questions HELP!!

Only a guess here but the popping in the rear could be a loose spring clamp. I have heard of this happening, it doen't sound too uncommen. What happens is that one of the rear springs slids out of the pack when there is a twisting on the axel. Check the clips that hold the spring packs together. Is one bent, or missing?
As far as the shimmy, check your motor mounts, my guess is that the rubber in them has given way and there is a lot of play.
