I had a u-joint (driver side at wheel) start clunking. I jacked up my rig (2014 Jeep JKU) to verify, and could see the joint shift in conjunction with the clunk. I replaced the joint and now just 300 miles later, the clunk us back! Why? Could I have a bad axle shaft/wheel pinion causing the u-joint failure? Any thoughts or help is appreciated.

It could be a multitude of things. Without seeing the joint itself it could be a possible bad joint initially. It could also be too much pressure or misalignment on install. Most likely it is not caused by a bent axle as U joints are designed to go in any direction. When you did the install on the new U-joint initially were you able to move it freely in any direction?
