Thats is exactly what it is. It allows the front diffrerential to relieve pressure when fluid warms and expands. Just make sure it is not in the way of steering components and wont get pinched by suspension. All is well.

There is a hose hanging under the drivers side front end of my 1998 jeep grand cherokee. It comes out of the top of the front differential but I can't seem to find what it connects to. I can't...


This is just a breather tube for the differential. It usually runs up and connects to the fender well. you can tie it to anything up high enough.

I have a hose hanging off the back of my front differential and dont know where it goes


may be the breather hose for the axle. looking around can be difficult seeing theres not alot of room. there should be a stem coming out the top side of the axle, around the pumpkin.

Hose from the front differential.


This hose you refer to is the breather tube for the differential. It connects to a fitting at the top of the differential housing and runs up the back side of the radiator so you won't run the risk of water entering the differential if you submerge the front axle in water. Reconnect the rubber hose to the fitting on the differentail.

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model


The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4

May buy a Cherokee with a front differential problem.

FRONT END


Drive the car in a parking lot and make left and right hand turns.
If the noise goes away on either turn then the problem is a front hub bearing.
If the noise is still there, it could be possible front differential bearings.
