05 Grand cherokee Clunk/Pop from front left
I just got a used 05 grand cherokee, when I bought it I found a couple issues that the dealer agreed to fix if I bought it. One of the issues I found was that the jeep pulled to the right and the steering wheel was off center. It also occasionally has a pop or clunk sound coming from the front left during spirited acceleration from a stop. It doesn't always make the pop sound but it does every so often. My question is does this sound like a balljoint issue? Anyway I can verify if it's balljoints or tie rods or anything? I would just like to verify myself before I take it in and have them possibly try to do a quick fix on it so they don't have to replace ball joints orbwhatever else it may be

Sounds like a tie rod end or ball joint to me. They should be able to put it up on the lift and find the problem.

There are alot of threads on here about the front end pop and alot of different reasons why people get the pop/clunk. Could be anything like a bad CV shaft to bad bushings or a tie rod to a ball joint like Viperman said. Let us know what you find out!

Sway bar end links need replacing. You cannot inspect them without removing them from the vehicle, and the mounting holes get gouged out, causing the clunk. My originals went bad in 35k. I would also replace the sway bar mount brackets and rubber bushings, and get the newer 06 and up brackets and bushings with the groove in the center.

You gotta wonder if dealers check out their cars before they sell them. I see a lot of posts on here that state the dealer will fix this or that problem if you buy it..Buyer beware.. Have a mechanic go with you, before you buy a used car... Buy from a dealer with a good reputation..
