Almost every time I back out of the driveway, I hear a snapping noise coming from the front passenger side of the jeep. It is quick and only happens at low speeds, mostly when coming out of the driveway.
Until recently I thought it had something to do with my leaf spring bushings. They were pretty badly deteriorated (to the point of causing death wobble) so I replaced what I could afford at the time which were only the bushings on the front of the springs and the shackle bushings. same in the rear. However the other bushings on the springs (non-shackle points) still remain un-replaced and deteriorating.
I tell you about ^that^ because I'm curious if bad bushings underneath could cause a snapping noise.
-How long can/will Wheel joints go before they start to deteriorate and need replacing?
-How do I know if I need to replace it? (symptoms?)
I'm just looking for ideas as to what that snapping noise could be and how to fix it. It doesn't seem to be hurting anything presently, but it is kinda unnerving.
