Dana 30 Axle Shaft U Joint...
So my left axle shaft u joint is clicking and clacking under mild pre-load and crawling situations. Atleast I THINK it's my u-joint, it hasn't done "the angry sparrow" chirp but i'm getting a clacking noise from time to time when that specific tire is under little stress, so i figured its a bad U-joint. I've had the Jeep almost 5 years now and have only done the DS U-Joints, never the ones for the axle shafts, so I will probably just do the front end. But as far as your guys' experience goes, does this sound like a correct diagnosis? It only makes the clacking sound in 4 wheel while i'm turning. Its def. a click-clack and not a squeak/chirp. I searched the threads and couldn't find a write up on removing the axle shafts for a Dana 30, i've never done it and need to see how its done. Also the front end on the Jeep is stock, whats the stock U-Joints for the front shafts?
P.S- If you guys think it might be something else, please throw in your opinions.
