Another day, another noise...
I'm in the process currently of refreshing my Jeep's suspension, and it's fighting me every step of the way. The current issue I'm having is a clunk over slight bumps in the rear (sounds like the passenger's side, I THINK it's the rear but it's hard to tell).
Here's what I've replaced thus far:
- 2" BB and Rough Country N2.0 shocks - they are the right length, already verified that.
- New Moog front sway bar bushings and new front greasable sway bar links. Haven't added the grease yet...
- New Moog rear sway bar bushings.
- New rear tailgate bump stops (mine were literally gone and almost metal on metal)
I drove the Jeep around after installing the rear bushings first, and it handled like a dream; nice and quiet and tight. It was only AFTER I added the front sway bar stuff that I started getting the clunks. To be fair, it's been cold as balls out here, -5 *F yesterday with the windchill.
Looking for some insight here. Once I get a semi nice day, I'll jack it up and have a feel around for any weak points. The fact that the clunk appeared so suddenly leads me to think it isn't front/rear track bar or control arm issues. No death wobble/tracking issues with the BB installed either.
