    CLickity Click?

    On my 2017 JK with PR44 up front, when I am full locked to driver side and in reverse, there is a loud clicking from the front end, seemingly from the driver side C. Any ideas what it might be and how critical it is to get address? Full lock in drive on either side is fine. (all of this in 2WD).

    Thanks for any input.

    Your u joints are probably shot. Reach in and grab your axle shaft at the u joint and try to shake it. If it's loose or you hear any clanking that's the culprit

    ^^ This or if you went with RCV shafts, that Rice Krispies noise is what they consider normal.

    No RCV, I hated the rice crispy noise. Crazy if it is the u-joint, as I only have 2k miles on the axle. Will check though.

    No chance it's the tire hitting something? Or possibly even brake hardware loose? Just seems strange that it only occurs in reverse.

    I just got it to happen in forward at lunch. Recorded it, but wasn't close enough to the U-Joint, will try again tonight.

    LOL, after lots of checking, I figured out my inner liner was slightly bent (plastic) and was catching the tire at full lock. 3000 miles on my U-Joints, I was not going to be happy if that was it.

    Don't you hate when it's something so simple but you've put in way more work than needed...haha.

    Indeed, it was not obvious until I had a friend hold it at full lock, and you could see the tread of the tire slightly nicking it. Sounded like a bad u-joint all the way. WHEW!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
