I found that mine was caused by the aforementioned trackbar being adjusted a bit too long. It was pushing the axle too far to the passenger side, causing the front of the driveshaft to grind on the exhaust y-pipe when the front axle moved upwards. I'd noticed it was making less and less noise the less I drove it - this was because the driveshaft was actually grinding away the metal on the y-pipe!



Thankfully, I don't drive it everyday, and figured it out before it could grind a hole in the pipe. After readjusting the trackbar and getting the axle centered a bit better last night, it seems to have alleviated the grinding noise over bumps!

Did note that the tires have a good bit of toe-out, so I'm taking it to a different shop for an alignment to get that fixed up. Could fix that myself without too much effort, but I kinda feel like being lazy today.

Went to Waterway car wash and I was told they don't wash pre 2011 jeep grand Cherokee's due to sudden accelerations? Wtf?

Finally replaced my skyjackers with bilsteins. Also replaced all my isolators. In the process of disconnecting the sway bar for installation, i couldn't help but wonder what keeps the shock from bottoming out when wheeling disco'd. I'm planning on my first wheeling trip in the next few weeks and really dont want to mess these new shocks up. I have 2.5/2 inch lift. Will I be ok or need further mods?

Bah. Ball joints need replacing on the front passenger side. Can't get it aligned 'til I do that. It's always something!

Looks good! Although I dunno about that front lip. Seems a bit too big... Kinda looks like it needs to curl up like a Dali 'stache (at which point I'd be all for it!)
