ok every time i go wheeling, i have this horribly irritating squeak coming from the front end. i also sometimes after coming off a ledge or something there is a resonating clunk and popping. the squeaking only happens on the road under like 30 mph but it is a blimish on my car when it otherwise is flawless..
i just wanted some input on what it could be and how to fix it

Seeing as it's stock, I would be shocked if it was just a loose bolt.

The squeaking, is it rhythmic? If so, I would look at the brakes.

The clunk, I would look at loose LCA bolts, Loose lower shock bolts and loose upper shock bolts.

I would check for a bad ball joint.

I would also look for a loose swaybar link end.

Clunking means something is loose, either because of a loose bolt or because something is broke.

Look to make sure you did not bust s spring or blow a shock (look for wetness on the shock even when everything else is dry).
