For the past few months I've noticed an increasingly loud clunk coming from the rear when the Jeep starts forward from a stop. It happens when driving straight or turning. Finally had a dealer confirm the noise and he said "it happens on these Jeeps" and said they ordered the following part to resolve the issue. I haven't read of anyone else needing this part replaced to confirm the service manager's comment. We'll see if they find anything else once they open up the diff. Will update the thread after the repair.

Actually, there's a couple of extensive threads that are dedicated to the lsd clutch hyper wearing and turning the rear diff oil into an emery paste that in turn begins prematurely wearing the pinion shaft and carrier bearings.
