What do you mean?? A knocking sound while driving? From the axle, front hub, drive shaft, or what?

Axles shifting and springs twitching????
When driving? What are you talking about?

Are the rubber bushings on your springs swaybar, track bar, etc dry rotted or cracked? If so, i would start by replacing them. Also check for broken leaves in the spring packs and worn body mount bushings. Make sure that all bolts/nuts are tight

Is your rig stock?lifted? body lift? A description of your rig would help.

I have a Trail Master 2inch lift i think, a 1 and 1/4 shackles, and thats about all, and 29inch wheels, it is only when i oversteer though, like allthe way left and then the minute i turn to the right it will pop back into place. I have pictures how do i place them?

Jack up the whole front end and shake each wheel violently .make sure the jeep is supported well.I suggest jackstands. Shake it top to bottom and then front to back. then check all the mounts for the wheels and also the engine. use a torque wrench and tighten the spring packs in a x pattern
