All you have to do is loosen the 2 bolts for the rack enough to slide it back a little. The socket will then fit

Awesome post. Thanks for sharing.

Been chasing this noise myself for a while. Thought it was bushings or a ball joint somewhere. Going to give this a shot today or tomorrow.

EDIT: And here is the Current link to the J E E P G a r a g e thread. The one above wasnt working for me. Just get rid of the extra spaces.

It's odd that many of us are having this problem. I wonder if its a lack of proper adjustment when made, or just a poor choice in rack

I dont know. As easy as the "bolt" on mine was to turn I wonder if after 117K it maybe has moved on its own cause it never did it until about 10k miles ago. Have had the lift on since about 37k

Then again, less than a 1/4 turn eliminated it alltogether any more than that and the wheel would not return to center on its own. Maybe its just the tolerances in there

Mine took a bit of effort to break it loose. Just be sure you are using the correct socket

Yep, I installed a lift two weeks ago and have that little pop once in a while now when starting from a dead stop as the weight transfers on acceleration. Good thread.

Does anyone know what exactly is being done when that bolt is turned?? Is there a clutch pack or what?

It's a yoke adjustment. I'm picturing a wedge of sort, taking up play in the moving parts. I'm sure it's a bit more technical than that.

Pinion lash maybe? Whatever the heck it is its hard to believe that a quarter turn or so makes such a huge difference. But it really does.

Thanks for posting this, it solved my problem. I lucked out and was able to get it to move with a standard socket and it didn't strip.
