When you checked that track bar, were you moving the Jeep or were you reaching up and moving the track bar. I have a knock underneath that sounds exactly like that and I've been thinking for a while that it may be my track bar. I can't budge it from underneath the Jeep though. At least I haven't been able to the last time I checked it.

That's how my track bar was loose too. I had a friend watch while I turned the steering wheel backhand forth.

I replaced computer in my 1998 Jeep today. I had to order it in from Florida. Next is to clean out the inside and get some tires. It hasn't been running since last November

I bought a Jeep rim for 10$ , a spare tire of the same size and model as mine for 40$, and mount and balance for 15$. Pretty happy about having a full size spare now! I love Craigslist.
