I took my rear drive shaft off today to help figure out where this popping noise is coming from when I start out from a stop in fwd or reverse. The drift shaft Looked good, all the u-joints looked to be in good shape. I then drove it around in 4WD without the rear drive shaft on and I didn't get the pooping noise. I then greased up the rear drive shaft and slapped it back on. Took it out for another drive and the popping came back. I then went to a parking lot and flipped it back into 4WD and went back and forth and I couldn't get it to pop again. Took it out of 4WD and the popping came back. Anyone know what might be up??? Loose transfer case chain?

Check the gears in your diff. Friend had the same problem I think. His would pop unless he started really slow.

The drive shaft is a Tom Woods that is 3 years old so I don't thin it is that.

I had it re-geared a couple years ago. I think I am going to call up the shop that did it and have them take a look at it.

Mine was a lot younger than that and I just replaced the yoke. I thought it was gears too.

My new ZJ tie rod is arriving Tuesday, so I didn't bother with the alignment only to do it again a couple days later. I will just have to avoid the highway for a couple days.

Given that the original steering components have 68,000 miles on them, I would not be surprised if something is worn out and the lift, small as it is, is highlighting that. I'll know more later this week. I'll check the trackbar while I'm at it.

Once I get moving there is no problem. It is just starting from a stop.

Mine was right around 3 years as well and mine took a dump on me as well.

But that start is what makes it worse

Got my front hockey puck bumpstops glued in (used red RTV) and they are SOLID. Im surprised by how strong that RTV is.

Any tips for getting the rear bumpstop rubber bumpers out of the cups on the rear? I would prefer not taking out the springs if I had a choice; but I cant get those stupid things to break free. They turn with some pliers, but will not twist out. Also, what size bolt is for the rear bumpstops? Im just gonna put some hockey pucks under the bumpstop and extend them a bit.

Also, adjusted my rear pinion a little.
