There's a knock in my steer!


Recommended Posts

Does it feel like the wheels are hopping when you make tight turns? Or do you hear a popping noise?

No it just sounds like a violent knock.

 

Are you putting it in 4WD on pavement?

 

If so -- DON'T!

Duly noted. Why not though? I'm just essentially putting power to all four wheels. I just wanted to test out the 4x4. Do you think it wouldn't make those noises if I was off-road?

You cannot run a traditional part-time transfer case like the 207/231 that came in our MJ's on dry pavement. It puts the case in a bind when you turn. You can do this with an all wheel drive or "full time" case as they are designed for internal slippage to compensate. You really should google up some basic 4wd info and read up on it as it will probably help you in the long run.

How big are your tires? And are you running factory or aftermarket wheels?

 

I do not know the size of my tires, I believe they are about 30 inches. 235/75/15 If memory serves me. I'm pretty sure they're aftermarket wheels, but not 100% positive.
