SOURCE: i have a2001 cherokee sport

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.

SOURCE: Replacing front drive axle universal joints.

remove front wheel brakes,rotors, axle nut,remove the four bolts on the bake side of your unit bearing using one of the 4 bolts removed from the unit bearing (also knowin as wheel bearing) go get a half dozen of the same bolt only 1 to 2 inchs longer theard them into the unit bearing from the back side and start beating. the unit bearing is a sob to get out but will come out with time once you get it out pull out your axle shaft replace the ujoint and reassemble anti seize everything as you re assemble it

SOURCE: need to know fluid capacity of differential

Dont remember specific amounts for those but they are "fill till it comes out of fill hole" On flat level ground. About three gallons should do it with some leftover. Check with your parts house or dealer to make sure of what goes into the transfer case...many now use dextron III not gear lube.
Any excessive metal flakes in old lube indicates a problem with internal parts wear for either diffs or case. (everything wears so there is always some, it just shouldn't look like glitter paint)
There should be tow approx 1" nuts on the back of the case lower one is drain, upper to fill. Diff cover needs to be removed to drain. Fill through plug on cover.

If you have a positraction differential, you need posi additive along with the new lube. After it's in, take it to a parking lot and make tight left turns then tight right turns to get the lube between the posi plates. That usually frees it up unless there is an actual mechanical problem in the diff.
good luck!

When I shift into reverse or drive, there is a jump/jerk sometimes worse than others. What is that

I would check the universal joints on the drive shaft to see if one is bad and causing the slap/jerk. This is assuming the trans. shaft has no end play or a bad bearing in the trans. Also you will need to check the rear end to make sure there is no slap in it. In addition, if nothing is in those areas I would check to make sure the wheel bearings and axles don't have any slop in them. Hope this helps.

I've replaced upper ball joint both, cv axles both. And my expedition still clunks and jerks when I turn corners. Why?

We can't guess for you

The bottom ball joints usually go on those vehicles

Can't the shop that did the work tell you why?

Your not replacing worn parts obviously

Any experienced person to road test & inspect
under it, can resolve that problem

In sharp turns, right or left, front end shinmies/shakes. Is this a trnsfer case problem..? Have a 2000 Grand Cherokee with Quadra-Trac

I don't remember what the cut-off year was when Jeep changed from standard universal joints to C/V joints but your problem sounds a lot like a bad end joint on a front axle shaft. "U" joints are "X" type...CV's have a rubber boot covering them. If the boot is torn that also could cause the CV to fail but unless they are really bad generally they get real noisy first before they get to the point of binding.
Only way your transfer case could be doing that is if you have different size tires in the front or rear.
Usually a bad transfer case will make the whole vehicle shudder, even going straight.
If you have X type joints, don't go by how they look... you need to remove them to see if they are binding.

There is a clanging noise when i put it in gear and can hear it while driving is it the rear end or universal joint

Check rear-end fluid level and play in rear pinion gear.
Check universal joints for play. If play is in pinion gear change rear end fluid and add a full bottle of LUCAS oil stabilizer, will quiet rear end noise.
