turning produces clunk? greased linkage still issue
everytime i turn the steering wheel i get a loud clunk, both left and right turns. it turns fine but i feel something give and heard the noise. i greased the tie rods and drag link and lower ball joints. the tie rods seem to be fine. i also changed the power steering fluid a couple months ago. fluid is at good level. it just recently started doing it. ANY help will be greatly appreciated
no jerk in wheel. just the clunk that i can feel thru the floor boards. it still turns fine. it only does it at random. it will do it for a couple days then stop. then randomly start again in a few weeks if then.....
On my YJ it was the end of the leaf springs "slipping" on each other. It would happen only every other day or so. Had my friend turn the wheel back and forth while I looked at the front end thinking it was something else. Have someone do this for you and you can at least look for something wrong.
had the wife turn the wheel while i looked underneath. of course it didnt do it then. BUT i did notice the leaf springs are no together. they seem to be coming apart (one more to the right and one more to the left). these are newer springs with poly bushings and they still have the plastic shims in between but seem to be twisting out of place. anybody know what causing this and how to fix it???
