You more than likely have one of two problems. One of your shock absorbers has a broken attachment bracket or 2) You have a broken exhaust bracket to your muffler. To check the shock just have the vehicle on a flat area motor turned off with emergency brake on and go to each side and "bounce" the vehicle using your body weight. Then to check the exhaust do this when motor is completely cool motor off emergency brake on and chock the tires so there is no chance the vehicle will roll. Get under the rear and attempt to move the exhaust assembly. If it moves to any degree side to side etc then it is this. If the vehicle bounces excessively when you bounce on it then it is the shock - repair accordingly. Hope this helps.

Every time I go over a bump or hit a pothole there is a loud clunking noise coming from the front end. Anyone else had the same problem.


You have some joint or bushing that is worn. Could be ball joint, stabilizer bar bushing. Many possibilities. A look underneath might show you the answer.

Loud banging noise when i go over a bump on passenger side front and a clicking when i pull into a parking spot or three point turn both left and right took it to dealership say they cant find anything


The clicking is the halfshafts or front wheel drive axles. I have a hard time believing that they have went bad already but anything is possible. The banging noise is something in the suspension, perhaps struts or a sway bar link.

check carefully on the underside for the silencer pipe rubbing against the body when the suspension is pushed mainly due to any damage. Also it could be damaged shock absobers or dampeners. check this out

I'm hearing a loud ''cranking'' noise from the back of my 1996 jeep cherokee mostly when making turns or hitting potholes/bumps-could it be shocks/bushings?


If shocks are bad, the links on the swaybar will hit the body on bumps. Check everything...you can see it...I can't!
