The jeep has given me over a year of trouble free usage and with all my hobbies and needing to move things ( MX bikes, sleds, dead stuff) I decided I need a pick-up. so ive been doing some things to get the jeep ready to sell and noticed my trans was loose ( I am lucky enough to have a standard trans XJ
) so I popped a new trans mount in and solved that but now have a hesitation and slam when I put her in gear and let out on the clutch. seems the pinion is slamming into the ring gear inside maybe? theres play back there as well as a Vibration in the rear driveline when on the gas. I don't believe its the Ujoints as they are all less then a year old and the DS has zero play in it but the pinion has the play. I am going to try to drain the rear this week and see if something is chewed up or what but don't know much about rears or what to look at or for or how hard it could be to fix.
any ideas fellas? kinda stuck with the jeep in almost undrivable condition and school starts Wednesday so this is about the worst time this can happen.
