Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Lower bushing in eyelet is getting pretty distorted and smushed on driver side. sounds like a creak or pop if i turn to fast or hit a few pot-holes or push up and down on driver side wheel well for a few seconds. the sound is definately coming from bottom of driver side sway bar end link. ive tightened up the link bolt on bottom of link while holding nut so as not to let spin. bolt that holds link to axle HAD a fat polyeurothane bushing that is slowly disenegrating with me tightening it regularly. the noise seems to come and go, sometimes after ive made sure bolt is tight it will still make noise after a few miles.. im assuming its working its way loose, but ive tightened to point of almost braking cheater bar and noise always returns... im on my 3rd pair of end links in a year... should i just get some jks quick discos and call it even with this jeep? or is there something im doin wrong here...
Your not doing anything to correct the issue at all
What I do is remove the Stabilizer Bar & have it Media
Blasted clean of all rust,then prime & paint,& install ALL
NEW bushings from the dealers parts department
Look at it as Preventative Maintenance
I like to put all my vehicles down for a week or more,
every year & be pro active & replace things like that

Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

Just spot weld the nut to the body and cppe on working? Don't destory the nut but weld it. and keep moving. If you don'y want to do this you can replace the whole Front Axel adaptor, which you have to weld???

sway bar end links are most noticeable when hitting small bumps in rapid sucession but a ball joint will squeek just sitting there pushing on the car, try to grease them they may go quiet for a while but will eventually need replaced
