Tracking down and repairing the clunk in my front suspension.
For a while now, my 1988 Jeep Cherokee XJ has had a clunk sound that can be felt on the floor whenever I go form stopping to going. It is especially bad when swapping from reverse to forward. I removed a control arm bolt and found the mounting holes in the axle were oval-shaped.
I have been using Autozone Duralast Gold pads on my Jeeps for many years. They have always performed adequately and the lifetime replacement warranty has been great. I have not paid for pads in years.
However, the last set of pads I put on my Jeep, however, have performed less than I expected. I don’t know if they changed the formula, or I just got a bad set. They have even been wearing faster than usual. But the stopping power has been downright scary at times.
