    Front end noise

    Hello all, I am new to all that is jeep so bear with me. I have a 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport I6
    I was driving in the snow last night in a foot of snow (cool) after about 2 hours I started getting a "thunk thunk thunk.." noise from the front end the faster I went the faster the noise and vibration got.. this was while going straight. Noise would go away while under load only while coasting would it come back.. here is the strange part... when I shift into 2wheel drive the noise is worse and constant.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like a u joint as mentioned before. If the noise is as bad as you say it should be pretty obvious what joint it's coming from. I doubt it's and ball joints but check them wile your at it.
