I went in for an alignment at the dealer and asked if they could make the adjustment for me. After telling me that jeepforum was wrong, they proceeded to tell me that the pop was from the 2" lift and not having sway bars, lol. I walked out feeling dumber. Some things you just have to do yourself!

What idiots. Just having a lift doesn't make a pop. The noise has to come from a component. And obviously it's correctable, as not everyone with a lift has noise! The facts are pretty simple. I had a pop, I turned the screw, the pop is gone. A few of us have had the same results. Sometimes I just want to punch somebody in the face when they are insisting on something that is totally wrong

Yep! That's the one. The star (inverted torx??? who knew there was such a thing) bolt is the one to turn.

To those talking about / buying the rack and pinion:

You must not be using the correct tool. If you stripped the tips, the proper tool (e-torx) will still work

Has anyone tried this on a 5.7? It is in a difficult to reach location. Any tricks out there?

Yes I have a 5.7. The trick is to back off the 2 bolts holding the rack to the frame. Just back them off a half inch or so. Then you can push the rack back enough to get the socket on the bolt head

Thanks...think I will have to hit it with some PB Blaster and let it sit. The bolts holder the rack to the frame are on tight. Were you able to get a socket on them or just an open ended wrench? Seems like a tight fit in there.

Tight fit? The bolt head is right in the open up front next to the swaybar bushing. Couldn't be any easier! Just get a socket on a breaker bar

Hmmm, I was looking at the bolts in the back. In other words if you climb under and look at the rack from the rear facing forward there are two bolts on either side. Hard to get a socket on them. I feel stupid. These are definitely very easy to get to. Thanks a million! Hope this takes the clunk out.

I was able to make the adjustment. the clunk is still there but the pop on acceleration is gone and the steering is a bit stiffer. I guess I will still keep looking for what is clunking
