1998 Jeep Cherokee Limited I-6 from North America
My jeep has developed a suspension thump when I hit bumps or ruts. The thump almost sounds like the spring is hitting the frame!
The jeep is great except for the bad gas mileage (I live in the mountains), and the suspension knock! any ideas on how to fix the suspension would be appreciated!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

On my 98 cherokee, I had the same suspension knock, but I ended up replacing the rubber bushings where the back shocks connected to the vehicle and it fixed it right up. $3 rubber bushings and it was good as new.

Yes, check the shock bushings - this is common, these wear out.
And, leave the 3" lift alone - this ruins the vehicle and creates driveability issues. There's a reason only 19 year old kids do this; big waste of money and time.
