#4457 of 5143 Odd rotor size? 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport
May 22, 2009 (6:45 pm)
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Bought new rotors, and after putting them on the front wheels wouldn't turn.
I checked the sizes and the "stock" rotors are 1/2" (roughly) smaller in diameter. Auto Zone and a belvy of other places cannot help me. Maybe someone here has a part number or knows what they should be?
The "stock" rotors given as replacements were 3115's (305mm), the old rotors appear to be 265-275mm. Same hat size and overall dimensions as the 3115's, just smaller diameter.
We have searched and opened 20 boxes at Auto Zone (love those folks there) with no luck.
Can anyone help?
#4458 of 5143 Squeakey Grand Cherokee
May 24, 2009 (6:33 am)
I have a 1996 4x2 Grand Cherokee Laredo. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a squeak coming from the rear only when I am driving forward. It does not do it in reverse. As the weeks go by it has gotten allot louder and I can not tell where it is coming from. As far as I can tell, it is coming from the rear and is loud. Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

The "99" through "04" GC has a known fault with the heater blend air doors, especially the automatic temperature control heaters, you may be experiencing this problem, symptoms are no heat on passenger side or drivers side or maybe heat on one and not the other, this is an expensive fix if it is the problem as the dash has to be pulled, but not all is lost, there is a guy on ebay who sells a fix kit you can install from under the dash it works and fixes problem for a fraction of the dealer cost, hope this helps, WKjeeps.com has an article about this problem.

#4460 of 5143 grand Cherokee front dif problems
May 25, 2009 (10:11 am)
IU have a 98 Grand Cherokee that keeps blowing front diffs. Two in the last two weeks! I also have a 94 Cherokee scout that Im about to junk. Would it be poss ible to install the transfer case and front diff from the scout to the
grand. I really hate the full time 4 wheel drive on the Grand to start with! I was in a pinch and got the Grand Cherokee for a good price paid $2000 and now have an additional $3000 into it. I was just going to put another junk yard dif in it and sell it but I dont want to screw someone else.

I also have a '98 GCLtd and I removed the front drive completely. As I only use it as a road car I didn't see the need for 4x4. Take out both front drive axles but retain the stub axles to the wheels. Remove the prop shaft from between the diff and transfer case. You then have a perfectly good road car, with perhaps a little understeer, with less front end noise and no prancing about when starting off.

Thanks for that might actually do that. DOes your transher box not work now? my transfer box is making some noise? if doing that wil help might do that. Is it just as easy to make it into front wheel drive, as its better in snow.

I am having the same problem.If you go left or right does it stop? if you turn left and it stops it means the problem is on that side and it could be a bearing. if it sfront its cheaper than the rear one. Also might be the diff. have you noticed any different with performance.
hope this helps.

I have exactly the same problem with my 2004 Jeep GC. I bought it 2 years ago & noticed the same thing as soon as I drove off the Patrick Pontiac lot. I took it back to them & naturally, they couldn't find anything. Since then I had Elmer's, my regular mechanic, diagnose the steering column replacement and tell me to take it back to Patrick because it's a $1000 job. I did this, & again, they did not find this problem. I don't regret buying my Jeep; I regret who I bought it from. I'm going to Vision for 3rd opinion and then most likely will have my trustworthy guys at Elmer's fix it. Good Luck
