You must replace and lube the front sway bar bushings,chrysler service bulletin calls it a squak, but can sound like a rubbing, a clunk etc the common factor is this is really noticeable the colder it gets outside

    My problem is not a rubbing or clunking sound, my 02 jeep liberty's front end on both sides literally slams to the ground when going down the road whether it be a pothole of a slight dip in the road or a speed bump. I've replaced shocks and springs and it still does it, i'm afraid one ay its going to falll apart

The 2 guys that posted it was the sway bar bushings were right on!! I brought the Service Bulliten to my mechanic. He still was hesitant, but I insisted. Called me a couple of hours later & said that did the trick! In the bulliten it says "squeak". Its more like a scraping/metal on metal sound. Thanks guys!!

I just replaced the upper and lower tie rod ends, Shocks and front end alignment. At my wits end i decided to look on line for help. Thank you all of you for your help. Tomorrow i will change the sway bar links and bushings and see what happens. ( fyi, this is what i thought it was in the first place but talked myself into thinking there is no way that noise could come from bushings.

Mike.

The problem is the front sway bar bushings, on 2004 they must be replaced and lubricated on earlier models they can be cleaned and lubed,parts are cheap and easy fix

Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

Clunking noise while turning/hitting bumps


Hay I would check your sway bar in the front .The bal may have came out of the seat located under front wheel well. Also they could be just loose. Check by rocking your jeep side to side .

Clunk noise from front left suspension


My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.
