Feeling a bump in rear when coming to a complete stop.

I have a 05 LJ. When I come to a complete stop i feel a bump a sec later coming from the rear and sometime feel the bump when accelerating from a complete stop.

I have the same problem. I am thinking it's my upper control arm bushings. The ones that get pressed into the axle tab. You may want to check those.

I just called up a couple of dealers and this is what they said:
- grease the splines on the drive shaft, it might be binding up
- check the trans fuild, it might be low and your transmission might be trying to catch up.
- your u-joints might be bad

So i got three different answers from 3 dealers.

Dead body in the trunk rolling around? You need to secure the loose items....or bury them in the woods.
