HELP metal popping sound while turning left or right only when accelerating
i have a 02 tj sport with 44re and have this popping sound comes from the rear and i can feel the rearend shift when it pops and hear metal grinding when it pops. i have the rough country 6in lift with a sye and cv just got put in a couple months ago and im running 33x12.50 still. the rear track bar that is the stock one with the rough country bracket is leaving marks on gas tank skid plate but its not loose at all i cant even move it with a pry bar when i try. i know i have the wrong bolt in the track bar mount to the rearend but i don't think it would cause it to twist in the bushing. but anyways yesterday just going down the highway my jeep starts viberating when i was doing 60mph and i could barely control it going from right to left so much in the rear. i checked everything out and it looked the same as before so i rolled away slowly and no vibes until i hit 50mph and i kept pulling over cause the vibes wouldn't stop until i slowed down to 10mph and then i kept repeating this till i got home and everything is still tight so i trying to find out if anyone else has this problem and i have a rear adjustable track bar and new bracket on order still hasn't came yet im in hawaii
DOOD I had the same problem... I thought it was suspension or traction related... ITS NOT ... Pop open your rear differential cover, then check your Spider gears for broken teeeth. If you dont see any, check the bottom of the inside of your case and you may find some teeth, hurry and do this before anymore break. Im doing it now as we speak. Not expensive fix at all. If you want to see what it looks like, do a search on youtube and youll find nice vids on people pulling tons of broken teeth outta the differential.
Could be the limited slip. Chang your diff fluids. Be sure to add the friction modifier.

i tightend the trac bar down and it tightend some so i took for a test drive and it was fine with no vibes but after 20 min it started to pop again around turns so it cant be the teeth can it or limited slip but im gonna pull the diff cover tom but until then i gotta run it but what kind of fluid should i get or friction modifier? and i just changed the fluid out before i did the lift a couple of months ago
You have to do periodic inspections of the pig, not only to change out oil, but to avoid carrier breaks by "nipping it in the bud" so to speak checking on the spiders. Don't ask
