Ugly popping sound when turning left/right, forward/reverse
Hey guys. We have an 04 Columbia Edition and there's this hideous popping sound from the rear end when turning left or right in forward or reverse. I'm thinking the spider gears in the rear diff are shot but I haven't taken the diff cover off to confirm. The Jeep is on a lift kit, installed by the previous owner. I've never had a lifted truck before so I don't know if these popping sounds can be a product of a lifted suspension. If anybody has dealt with this issue before, please let me know what you did to fix it. Thanks.
