Load clunk from under my 2003 Jeep Wrangler when going over bumps


You need to get the vehicle up on a hoist. It can be any number of things like a broken muffler mount, gas tank strap, undercarriage spare tire, and even a loose rear bumper. Shock absorbers could be worn out, a broken leaf on a spring, etc.

These are just some of the things possible.

Jacking points on all Jeep vehicles



c17hydro_1.gif

Your Jeep was supplied with a jack for emergency road repairs. This jack is fine for changing a flat tire or other short-term procedures not requiring you to go beneath the vehicle. Do not attempt to use the jack on any portions of the vehicle other than specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.

Placing a floor jack under the front frame rail



c17hydro_3.gif

Placing a floor jack under the rear frame rail at the leaf spring shackle. It may be necessary to place a block of wood between the frame rail and the jack



c17hydro_4.gif

Supporting the front of the vehicle with jack stands placed under each frame rail


A more convenient way of jacking is the use of a garage or floor jack. You may use the floor jack at the specified points in following the illustrations.

Never place the jack under the radiator, engine or transmission components. Severe and expensive damage will result when the jack is raised. Additionally, never jack under the floorpan or bodywork; the metal will deform

My rear end has dropped and looks crazy and will not lift


Do you have:
1. Shocks and Leaf Springs?
If so: the Shocks could be "shot" and/or broken or completely discharged. OR the Leaf Springs Retainers or the Leaf Springs have broken. The Retainers should have two (2) bolts holding braces which hold the multiple leafs of the Leaf Springs together. Check these. Also you have bushings bolted then welded to the frame that will need to be checked.
2. Struts with Coils (Springs)?
If so: the Struts could be "shot, and/or broken or completely discharged. The Coils (Springs) could be broken of dislocated.
3. Coils (Springs) without Struts?
If so: the Coils (Springs) could be broken or dislocated.
4. Independent Bar Suspension?
If so: the independent bars could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
5. Solid Axle?
If so: the Axle could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
Since you cannot lift the vehicle, I am assuming you are using the jack under the axle to lift? This would point to the Axle/Bars being broken.

Was an excessive load (weight) put on the back of the SUV lately?

If you can't lift the rear of the vehicle, jack-up and properly support the front then jack-up and support the middle towars the rear of the vehicle to gain access to the rear of the vehicle for a better look.
However while doing this if the rear starts rising: keep a careful eye on the rear tires to see if they are going lower than what they would normally go when you are jacking-up the rear, especially with a broken Axle or Bars. THIS COULD CAUSE THE BROKEN OR DISLOCATED PARTS TO FURTHER BREAK OR CAUSE OTHER CONNECTING PARTS TO FAIL AND BREAK OR COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE REST OF THE SURROUNDING AREAS OF THE CAR. I have seen an Axle and Bars that were broken "pierce" into the body of the vehicle because they were not carefully watching.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
ps...when describing your problem feel free to fully explain in as much detail as you can, including in this case what type of rear suspension system you have, 2WD, 4WD, AWD, your engine size etc. There is no limit to describing your problem. It enables us to get a very precise answer to your very precise problem quicker.

Own 1991 jeep yj. put 4" lift leaf springs on front and rear and cant fit the track bar and sway bar on, need help


ONE OF TWO THINGS ARE WRONG. EITHER THE TRACK AND SWAY BARS WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED ALSO OR YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK AND SEE IF THEY MAKE MOD KITS FOR THE BARS TO FIT. ANY TIME YOU RAISE A VEHICAL THAT MUCH OTHER PARTS MOVE OUT OF RANGE FOR THE ORIGINAL PARTS TO LINE UP SO THEY MAKE MONEY BY MAKING MOD KITS TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM. MORE THEN LIKLEY THEY MAKE A BOLT KIT WHERE THE BOLT ARE LONGER SO THEY WILL REACH THE AREA WHERE YOU NEED TO BOLT TOO

Axle, leaf springs, shocks


Replacing those items are pretty much "see it do it" repairs. Just remember that axles need to be supported by a floor jack so you can lower them after bolts have been removed, and body needs to be well supported with jackstands so it does not follow as stuff is being lowered. When changing a differential, gear ratio must be an exact match to one at other end. You will need lots of wd40 and some good solid 1/2" drive sockets and breaker bars to get hardware loose.

How do i remove coil springs from 1997 jeep wrangler Step by Step instructions please


General instructions are to drop the suspension down by removing sway bar, shocks etc, then lifting the body not the suspension off the ground till the springs are free. For specifics, get a manual it's too long to write out here.
