    Everytime i come to a complete stop, or take off from a complete stop i can feel this little pop or thud and it makes a wierd noise. The noise is not loud, and it sounds like some things is flexing and coming out of joint or something. I feel it in the driver's side floor board. Can you guys help me figure out what this is or what i should look for? Thanks for the help.

    get the wrenches out

    Better check all your body mount bolts,cab mounts,tranny and transfer case mounting bolts,bellhousing bolts, and the crossmember bolts,U-bolts,etc---it could also be the slip yoke splines are worn or dry and binding up,this will make a "thud" when you let off the brake after a stop,or when you first accelerate after a stop,you might get it to go away by pulling the driveshaft out and cleaning the splines out and re-greasing them with chassis lube.,if they arent too worn or sloppy,a loose bushing where the slip yoke slides into the T-case can do it too..:crazy:

    For what its worth , mine was a little noisy like that 2 years ago , all rod ends got replaced and it has never came back . I also had some pop that was probably the old flexy springs , as that noise left with the lift install . All I hear now is my body mounts which are AZ dry rotting and they will get it someday :k5: :k5:

    yea, i think it mite be a motor mount, i have to go in and re-check all the bolts on the mounts, to make sure that nothing loosened up. I am also gonna check trans mounts. We just put in a new motor over the summer, so that mite be it.
