  • Clicking and popping on take off...

    Anyone know what it means when you hear clicking and popping from the front when accellerating from a stop? It sounds just like a CV joint on its way out in a Honda Accord.
    Could it be the U-joint on the front drive shaft? Wheel bearings?
    I have an SOA without a twisted axle.

    Could be the rear drive-shaft u-joints. Mine was but I swore the noise was coming from the front...

    If your hubs are unlocked and the transfer case in neutral the front should not be an issue?

      It makes sense to me that the front driveshaft should not be turning if, like you said, the hubs are unlocked and the t-case is in 2WH. But also, like you said, I swear it's coming from the front.

      In addition, the rear drive shaft is brand new (SOA was done only a couple of months ago), so wouldn't they have checked the condition of the rear U joint before installing the new driveshaft?

        I have had that same problem before. If it does it in two wheel drive also, it can be the brakes hanging up, worn out shackles/bolts or even loose u-bolts. Sometimes a broken center bolt on the spring can do the same thing. That will give you a few things to eliminate.
