When you send your wife into the gas station to get something to drink while you fix the vacuum leak that's keeping the AC from working right (I.e. stuck on defrost).

my ZJ walked (or i suppose "drove") into a bar, and they asked it to leave because the minivans were getting scared, and there was a ricer hiding/crying in the corner.

My ZJ drove into a bar once too. I threw it in reverse and backed out through the hole in the wall.

It slows down when I do. It sound like its coming from the passenger. starting to be able to feel it also. When I turn left the clicking turns to a almost moan or clunking but turning right its just a faint click. It started after I went in a little mud I noticed there's no boot on either right or left axle. So I'm thinking passenger CV axle I'll replace the driver CV axle shortly after. Just wanted someone to back me up just so I know its whats wrong.

I have a very bad clicking coming from my front drive shaft, front ujoint. where it connects into the jack pot. it's l like the joint doesn't fit in correctly...give that a check. it also could be a CV behind your tire. take it off and see if there's play

Its not the ds I don't think it'd change when I turned. But I'll check all that tomorrow. I'm just leaning towards CV axle because it has no boot and also started clicking after I was in the mud nothing major but still mud.
