noise click sound under front

I am hearing a single pop/click sound when I apply gas from a stop. the noise occurs shortly after applying gas. it also does it when I stop. I don't believe it is the CV axles since it doesn't do it when I turn. Also I had the viscous coupler in the transfer case replaced about 100k miles ago, so I don't think that is it??

sounds like it is coming from the differential, but hard to tell.

I have '93 jeep grand cherokee laredo V8 4WD automatic tranny. differential is NOT limited slip.

any help appreciated

Could be the CV front Driveshaft or the U-joints on the Double cardan. Get under the vehicle and grab the front driveshaft and shake it. You should hear the sound again if it is either of those. Howler

i recently replaced the u-joints on the front drive shaft and replaced the entire CV axle on the RHS. I guess it could be the CV axle on the LHS, but it is not clicking during turns.

What about the CV on the Drive shaft (not axle)? Or the centering yoke on the Double carden joint?It just sounds like the problems I was having with my Driveshaft.

my drive shaft doesn't have a CV and I have replace all the u-joints on the drive shaft including the double cardan.

I think it is the front left CV axle. I'll just let it go for a while. those CV axles can hold up for a while. longer than the stinkin garages tell you they will

Did you replace your CV Shaft? Just stricks me as odd you would have the CV axle and not the shaft. Oh well. Now that I'm confused I'll just go hide in a corner. LOL
