i just got a gc laredo5.2,quadratrac....NASTY grinding noise in the rear-makes the noise louder when it gets hotter/longer i drive it..
--you mentioned this "rearend rebuild kit", how mutch for the kit,and what did it cost you to get it rebuilt?..
--this thing is really got me in a quandry,as the leather heated seats spoiled me this winter,but where it only gets ten miles to the gallon,it's killing me on gas!..
--it is a -98,with 120,xxx on it...body's straight..i got it for cheap,as kids got into the yard while it was waiting to get fixed,and broke out the passenger door glass,and the 1/4 glass..
replaced the door glass myself-$25 bucks--,and cut a piece of plexi for the 1/4 glass--kept the smow off the leather,at least,and doesn't look TOO bad..
--kbb says in ready to roll condition,it's worth 51,xxx,and low book is 1,800..
as handy as a jeep is,does it make sense to put two grand into a 1,000 car?

Check your over the axle exhaust pipe. Mine was doing the same thing. The pipe was hitting the undercarriage. don't know how it happened but that was it in my case.

Im getting a winding noise from somewhere in rear end or axle gets louder with accelartion and canot hear it when i let off the gas until about 10 miles an hour to a stop. noticed it over a year ago and it just keeps getting louder. Is there a bearing back there somewhere that needs to be replaced?

have them check your pinion bearings also ujoint on the drive Shaft will need a hoist to check will be easer on a pat lift hoist rather than drive on
#18 of 32 chirping noise rear wheel area backing out or going uphill

When I back out my Jeep Cherokee 4WD Sport or am driving uphill there's sort of a chirping noise towards the rear wheel area. The sound does not happen when driving down hill. The sound only occurs if the back wheels are being driven at an incline. It doesn't make noise any other time. It sounds kind of like a chirping noise. I just had the sway bar bushings replaced and the car aligned and that didn't seem to fix it.

did you ever get to the bottom of the bottoming out issue? i have the exact same issue. I'll be going down a road and it will bottom out going in and out of a smooth scooped out depression, not even rough. i changed my shocks too, sway bars, tie rods, etc. no luck. i have to drive this jeep more gingerly than any other car i've ever had. someone suggested it might be the springs. it only happens when going into a dip, like at the maximum of where you might thing the springs would be compressed fully. i wonder if they are worn and they are just hitting themselves. i had brand new muffler, and remounted tranny last week - same exact problem with no difference of occurence. also, just had 4 new tires put on at that time. NO difference at all...
respond to this thread, or at doug dot bonneville at gmail dot com. Thanks!
