My front axle feels like it is loose... what I mean is that when I put it in reverse....go slow and hit brakes, it feels like the axle slips a little..like physically moves forward.. also, on bumpy roads it kind of clunks around a little. I have newer Rubicon LCAs... could this be my stock UCAs?? What else could it possibly be? Thanks guys!

I run WJ lower arms and stock Cherokee uppers currently. The WJ LCA's are great, but the upper arms developed a clunk on the drivers side. I pulled the arm off, replaced the bushing and all was great...for about a month. Then it started squeaking and clunking again. I need some CA Drop Brackets to straighten everything up, I suspect that will help with the clunks too. Just my thoughts. Mr. Green

Try checking your track bar mount on the unibody frame rail. Mine will loosen from time to time. Causes a clunking or popping when it gets loose. Mostly when I'm backing up and turning at the same time. Hope this helps
