O.k so today I replaced my passanger and driver side motor mount and it went smooth . when I put it all back together a few problems were noticed :
Problem one:I got a bad exhaust leak after further investigation I noticed the metal pipe that is on the downpipe came off

Problem two here is where it sucks : I began to get a bad clunking when In the rear when I shift from park to any gear and the 4 wheel drive stick is rockin around and when I make left turns there is a bad squeaking but when I straigten out it stops after about 30 seconds I noticed the C clip on the leaf spring is just clanging around loosley and after further investigation I notice on the trans the rubber bushing is has
like no absortion what so ever


so my question is was all this bad and I never noticed cause the jeep was so used it and by me tightening up the motor it made these problems more noticable or am gonna be in the market for a new rear axle

Thanks in advance

Go for the cheap things first.

#1. Check your u-joints. Grease and or replace as needed.
#2. Check out all of the rubber mounts common to the drive line for
deterioration and replace as needed.
#3. Check the fluid level in the rear axle.
#4. Pull axles and inspect the axle bearings for any damage.

That should keep you busy for awhile. Let me know what you find.
