Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
When backing up turn the wheel a bumping noise not so much a pop just like lower pitch bumping sound thats the only way I can describe it.
also happens when turning a shrp corner at low speeds.
can ya help with what it might be
Sounds like you have a constant velocity joint going out. If you can tell what side it is coming from that will be the one to replace. You can buy most of these cv joint shaft rebuilt at any local auto parts store, generally run any where from 70.00 to 120.00 exchange. They are not real difficult to replace if you want to tackle it, but it is hard to accomplish if you have never replaced one. It requires the removal of the suspension on the affect side. "wheel, brake caliper, steering knuckle, and tie rod end. and most probably the sway bar linkage. It is a good idea to have the alignment checked after replacement, just in case you don't get it back in exactly the place. Hope this helps.
