BEst way to due the job is to just replace the front axle, this assures you that there is not sand or any other forein material that could cause any issues with your axles. Especially if this is a 4 wheel drive.

Snapping sound from front left tire


I'm thinking you have a cv (constant velocity) joint problem.. If so, you'll most likely need to take it to a shop. The cv joints are the joints in the drive axles coming out the side of your trans-axle and going to the front wheel. They are most likely enclosed with rubber boots. These often need changed or serviced on high-mileage vehicles.

Hi, the likely problem is a worn out CV joint on one of your axles. Check for a torn boot on either axle. Once a toot tears open, dirt gets in and wears out the joint. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

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.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 4.0L. Just recently bought and there's a popping noise in the front and when turning sharply it's like the wheels lock and the jeep refuses to move and it's also...


sounds like a bad cv joint in one (or both) of the front axles. is the popping sound more prevalent when in reverse, with the wheel turned? if so, i'd assume that it is a bad cv joint and one or both front axles will need to be replaced.

Problem near the wheels on a Jeep Cherokee


If you Jeep is equipped with CV axles ( I can't tell b/c I don't see a year model or if it's a standard Cherokee or a Grand Cherokee, or even if it's 4x4), then he may have been referring to your CV axle boots. They are rubber boots that keep grease inside so as to lube the CV joint. It also keep the road grime and gunk out.

If the rubber boot cracks, then yes, stuff will get in there and it'll make it worse.

It's possible he could have been talking about the inside wheel well lining also. It's a little hard to tell according to the description. But if it's fallen it's possible it may not make noise in reverse, but only in drive. And yes, when it breaks it'll allow road stuff to get up in the front fender and make it rust out.

Both of these projects are pretty advanced, especially the CV boot.
