3 questions, help! 1994 ZJ

I have a 1994 ZJ that makes a popping noise that seems to come from the middle of the vehicle almost everytime I brake or accelerate hard. I was wondering what could be making this noise. How do I fix it

My second question is what could be making the carpet in the back of the car wet, and how could I fix it.



One more question. My steering wheel is always turned part way right when I am going straight. Is this my steering stabilizer? how do I fix.

First question:

You could have a worn ujoint at the front or rear driveshaft.


Second:

quit scaring the pee out of people when you drive! Probably a clogged rain drain hole or a leak in the roof.

Third:

you can adjust the steering wheel but it is more complicated than I want to get into for me on here. I'd grab a Haynes or Chilton's manual and dive into it.

Third question:
Loosen the two 15 mm bolts on the draglink that goes from the pitman arm to the tie rod, it has a sleeve you can spin and center the steering wheel, make sure the jeep steering is unlocked. This will not affect alignment.

This is a pic of the draglink that is connected to the pIttman arm, you can see the 2 bolts that need to get loosened and then you spin the sleeve, with the wheel unlocked to center it.
