Sounds like you have a loose control arm. Re-check for the proper torque at each upper and lower control arm. Also check the track bar mounting and re-torque. Sorry I don't have the proper torque values with me at the moment.

I just had the track bar retorqued by the place that did my alignment. I will check the control arms tonight though,
Thanks I'll let you know if that fixes it.

I think I figured it out, at least for now. It was the snappers on the RE swaybar disconnects hitting my coil spring and popping and bending one of them. Those disconnects suck!!! Anyone know where I can get any better ones??

The RE discos are the loudest things in the world. My wife thought that my jeep was falling apart until I took them off and viola, all quiet.

These are the ones that I am looking at to solve the clunk problem. I have yet to order them but the are highly recommended by other 3.5 superflex ZJ owners.
