Loose front end
 
Some creaking noises when turning. Hit bumps and front end feels loose. Was thinking ball joints but straight axle jeeps don't have ball joints do they???

Oh yes they do

Any axle that has turning wheels has ball joints. There are the pivot points

Jenglish 06-30-2013 05:20 PM

what if the front end just rattles a lot over uneven pavement in parking lots and neighborhoods?

coralman 06-30-2013 07:38 PM
