    Mine constantly clunks - like the rear end/axles are bouncing up and down. I recently replaced the complete rear end and it still does it. Replaced shocks as well. No clue what it is...but sounds terrible.

Jack up rear end and spin the wheel with your hand. Check for any types of distortions in the tyre and replace if necessary.

Check tightness of wheel nuts.

Check operation of rear brake.

Check for free play in rear wheel bearing.

Check condition of drive shaft and coupling.

Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

Check the rear universal joint on the drive shaft for wear or evidence of rust. Take hold of the driveshaft and check for excessive play. Check for excessive play in the rear axles and look for leaks from the seals while you have the rear tire off. Hopefully the noise is not related to an internal issue with the rear differential.

I have an oil leak between the drivers rear axel and the tire. What parts do I need to look into replacing?


You should be ok replacing the outer seal but check for bearing play or fautly outer wheel bearing before you disassemble. If to much lateral movement in axle shaft it will take out your new seal rather quickley.

Since you aready paid $400, go back to ;the shop and get your $'S worth!! Unless someone can prove that the axle bgs were bad, you shoulld ask why pinion & side gears were not diagonsed!!! (dosen't anyone test drive stuff after they "fix" something anymore??? Dosen't anyone give a damn???
If you can't get anywhere with this, find a junkyard unit and install it yourself. It isn't that hard. Just be sure that new lone has the same mount points and gear ratio matches ratio lof front axle.(count gear teeth if you must)

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming


check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced

Rear axle bearings need replaceing I hear grinding


Go to Jeep and buy a bearings, seals, and collar. The bearing is held in place on the axle by a keeper collar. This must be cut off to get the old bearing and seal off. Use a wizz wheel to cut it and then whack it with a chisle

To get the axle out. Remove rear diff cover, and wheel and start taking apart. It's not a terrible job, but if you aren't very mechanically inclined, take it to a shop. Make sure you use the correct fluid in the differential.
