Help with noise diagnosis and tire sizing!
I bought a 1999 XJ Sport 2Dr recently, and have been loving it. However, a clicking almost like a quick metal on metal scraping noise has developed. It seems to happen at any speed, but is easily noticeable at slow speeds, especially when turning to the left. I figure it's the U-joint on the driver's side axleshaft, but I would appreciate a second opinion.
Also, the previous owner had Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac LT245/75R16, these are a bit more aggressive than I need, I only drive on the road, though I do need to be able to handle snow easily. So, any recommendations as to what I should get would be nice.
I would be open to trade those tires, with the wheels (Rubicon) they're on for a more suitable set. I have all five, with very minimal wear. Let me know if you're interested, and I can send pictures.
