Spring is fine, and it makes sounds but in the back end, it almost sounds like something is loose back there when I go over bumps like the entire back end is kinda floating around or something. And yes it does kind of handle funny as said above the back end kind of floats around so i will be going down the road and all of a sudden it will start drifting left or right, and in the steering (not sure if this is common or not) not sure how to explain it but I can turn it about 1/8th of a turn either direction without anything happening.

Ok, also put your vehicle info in youtr signature. If you have a WJ, check the rear upper a-arm (control arm). Squeeking and sagging means the 2 bushings attaching it to the body may be shot. The ball joint on the axkle side also wears out. The ZJ has the traditional 2 upper links with a trackbar. If you have a ZJ, check those connections.

I don't have a GC yet, but most likely will get one Monday, before I do however I would like to know if there are any major issues with the auto transmission on a 2000 GC 4x4. Eventually it will be going off road in Uharrie NC and I want to make sure this rig can take it like a champ.

Default Running water noise in dash

Had the dreaded noise for a while on my ZJ 4.0L, and found the cause to be from the core plugs behind the exhaust manifold.
I noticed the side of the engine getting damp after cleaning it when I removed the SS manifold, to TIG welded it back together as the welds started to fail 14 months after replacing.

Default Tires & a lift, but whats best?

Hello all,

I am new to the world of wj's so here is a basic question. What A/T tires run best, keeping in mind this is a daily driver, and it is driven on the highway a little. I was also thinking of doing a BB, any recomendations on which one is better than the rest? There seem to be quite a few on the market. Any input is great, and thanks to all in advance.
