I have a 97 XJ with about 170k, i had some play and noise in the front end so i changed the U Joints, that fixed the play and some noise. Now i get a humm and some vibration at 40 mph I've replaced all 4 breaks and my allignment is good, could it just be a bad tire? What concerns me more is and after i've driven for a while at average speeds at low speeds (10-20 mph) i get a knocking that feels like its coming from the front dif. any suggestions before i break the bank replacing the entire front axle and dif?

I HADTHE SAME TYPE NOISE, I NOTICED THE TIE ROD CLAMP WAS POSITIONED WITH THE BOLT FACING TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. IT RUBBED A NICE NOTCH INTO PART OF THE STERRING DRAG LINK I BELIEVE, I REVERSED IT SO THE THE NOTCH FACED TOWARDS THE REAR AND MY CLUNK/KNOCK DISSAPPEARED.
