Get a locker you bum!


So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

Not that I know anything, but couldn't the D to R and R to D clunk be motor mounts?

Start with bushing and check if all the bolts are tight, id start with the trac bar and move to control arms.

I had same clunk, I ended up fixing it by tightening calipers, replaced the upper ca bushings with polys, tightened steering box and track bar + outer frame rail bolts on the mount, and noticed my sway bar mounts on the axle and under frame rail were loose, all these things done at once fixed it but I think it was the upper bushings that actually fixed it though. Just a few things I did too get mine fixed, same exact issue though, coming from d to r and r to d... I have a rotted out motor mount and no clunking currently, if his pop was like mine your can feel it on your feet, right above/near the upper ca frame bushing, after we did a thorough check and tighten every bolt it was gone! Just not sure which one actually fixed it. Also I know my dad's clunk was fringe the motor mount bolts that are notorious for coming loose, the ones the hold the mounts to the engine it's self, hope that made sense. Let me know of any of these helped. Thanks good luck

Lower axle end bushings are worn out. So tired of Rc. Starting a new job this week so hopefully can get some new lift parts
