Yeah it can be cause of road conditions weather conditions and most oe balljoints don't have grease fittings. Its not uncommon. A ball joint is probably the most abused and overlooked part of a suspension.

06 Jeep Wrangler making a loud clincking or grinding when turning


Hi there,

By any chance is the transfer case engaged?

A locked drive train could account for the noise being made only on turns.

Bring the transfer case to neutral then back to 2-high.

Or try to duplicate the problem by putting it into 4-high. THAT way the dealership would know exactly what to look at.

Got a 97 jeep wrangler 3 inch body lift and 4 inch suspension lift running 35x12.50x15 mt. when driving it seems to wander in stead of track straight. what do i need to do to fix this? it has rubicon upper...


That may be normal with 7 inches of lift and large tire. If it has not been in for an alignment after the install I would do that ASAP. 35" tires are expensive to burn up.

1993 Jeep Wrangler - Front Axel U joint, why no C clips?


The factory u-joints use plastic injection for retainers so when it comes time to replace the factory u-joint use a torch to heat the u-joint cups and you will see a melted plastic worm come out the side of the drive shaft, now you can drive out the old joint.
The replacement joint will use inner c-clips.

2005 jeep shimmy's (steering wheel and all)


Good excuse! You need to find a shop that does alignments and have special attention to caster. However, did the shake happen from when you first got it or did it develop over time? Check all front components for wear (by all I mean all) especially ball joints and steering damper (the sideways shock on the linkage) All can cause this condition.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.
