    So i installed a 3 inch lift, which consists of coil springs, shocks, rear sway bar links, and an adjustable track bar. a few days ago i noticed that every time im driving and i hot a bump, theres a clicking sound that sounds like its coming from the front passenger side. i cant figure out where exactly its coming from. i already tried pushing the passenger front axle up and down while parked to see if i can make it click but it doesnt. i havent installed the new track bar so maybe that could be it?

    Welcome! I would re check all the bolts to make sure they are tight.

    Welcome Benny.:wave:
    Along what Chris4x4 said. Did you swap out your control arms with adjustables or install a relocation brackets? If the control arms are to steep of an angle. It will feel like your slamming into bumps, and not rolling over them. Would also install the track bar and get your axles aligned. Hope this helps.

    Well yes since this generation of Grand Cherokee are WJs it reminds me of Willys Jeep, hence the name Willy.
