I have a 04 Wrangler sport with a dana 35 in the rear... For awhile now every time i gas it to go, it feels like someone is taking a sledgehammer to the ***-end of my jeep, and it happens everytime.
Ive jacked it up to see if i could see anything wrong, the pinion is still tight, but there is play in the driveline about an 1 to 1 1/2in of play as i grab the driveline and rotate it back and forth. plus i can move the wheels in and out like the wheel bearings are shot. on both sides.
Guess the question is, what would cause the banging in the rear end when i hit the gas? any sugestions before i pour a lot of money into this.
