Dana 300 Clicking when turning hard left

I've recently noticed a few "clicks" coming from what I believe to be my TC when turning hard left. The sound is a very mild version of the grinding noise you get when the TC isn't fully engaged.

The shifter doesn't bind in the floor or anything. I am running an Advance Adapter from TH400 to Dana 300. Had to notch out front of cross member to clear front drive shaft but I drove it for a while before the noise developed.

I'm gonna start by checking fluid although I have no leaks. I definitely want to look into having a custom and much stronger cross member made soon.

Any other thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,

Brian

is the suspension flexing to one side when you turn? This could cause some rubbing on the drive shaft.

I don't believe. Superlift springs, not so hot in the flex department.

I don't get much body roll from the Jeep.

Is this on dirt, or pavement? It is normal for stuff like this to happen on pavement. Check the condition of your front axle U-joints at the knuckles. The sound may be transmitted up the driveline.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
