    ok guys.. looking at a 1990 cherokee... only 3 things wrong with it mechanically that i can spot.. one is a clunk in the front over bumps.. no biggie im a front end tech
    2nd is when its cold, it likes to hesitate a tad off idle.
    3rd is if you launch it hard, there's what sounds like a grinding or groaning noise coming from underneath.. anyone ever run into this??

    I can't remember where I read it, probably in my 4 years of 4wd mags. That groaning was from the rearend. I heard the dealers just installed a piece of metal on uderside of body to quiet it down inside truck if customers complained. At least I thiught I read that. You could also look at some heep sites. Or try google . /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
