Hello I'm getting a cracking/ banging noise under hard acceleration , doesn't happen any other time , and is only in 1st and 2nd when the car is struggling for traction . Anyone know what this could be ?

You need to lift the car. It sits at the back of the gearbox. Could also be ARB's but difficult to diagnose without actually hearing the noise.

I think CV joints can make a cracking noise when worn. Is the sound central or only on one side?
its sounds like its coming from the n/s but its only when I boot it and its struggling for traction the rest of the time the car feels fine and no noise ...
