Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

00 Jeep GranCherLim Mayday! I'm goin down!

I have hellish knocks and clicks coming from my front end, and its not because i replaced the rotors and pads on all 4's a few weeks ago(which i actually thought would help a little), now i also have a front end roar which is more pronounced on acceleration at various speeds but dies down a bit when off the accelerator(could that be the mech fan clutch?). sometimes these knocks and clicks occur coasting straight under "no load" slow driving, sometimes when turning, sometimes they go away. I did replace the pitman arm a month ago since its bushing was toast, the steering wheel was slightly off center so i popped it back off n reset it almost perfect. What about that horoz shock tube? I think the noises scare people in parking lots. The tires are bald but definitly not the cause of this horrible(hopefully not too expensive) mess. And winter is coming to top it all off. Could putting the drivetrain in 4LO for a few seconds(just to see if its still there, since i never use it) have left something engaged/stuck?

You would have to put the Jeep up in the air on a lift. Put it in 4wd and check for noises from the front hub bearings.

Lots and lots of things can do this. I would recommend having the knocking sound investigated as the main concern, possibly by a good front-end shop. It could be a c-v joint or bad hub bearing which can allow a wobble in the front brake rotors. This would allow what you call a "judder".

Sometimes rust can form on the brake rotors while the car is parked. This is a weather related problem and if rust is the cause it can wear off to a smooth surface with driving. But a badly pitted rotor will need resurfacing or replacing. It can produce a scuffing sound, but not a knock.

1999 jeep grand cherokee limited warped rotors


  • Simply put, dealers are not always the most honest. Warped rotors is a very serious event. They warped from heat and a fair amount of it at that. The issues causing this should have been immediately addressed.

  • Lathing them down is a ridiculous concept in this case. They should have sent those rotors off for a quality inspection and the issue fixed as well as your rotors replaced. Perhaps at a cost but they were grossly negligent putting lives at risk. I would consider filing a complaint and never use them again.

We had two new tires put on the front with a front end alignment and supposedly a wheel balance. We noticed the Jeep "shimey" when we break coming off a highway when it wasn't prior.


Take the car back and have the tires re-balanced. Also have the front brake rotors checked to see if they are warped. If your front rotors are warped it will give you a shimmying effect when you apply the brakes coming to a stop. If they are warped you can either have them "turned" to bring them true again, but sometimes the rotors are inexpensive enough to just replace because even though you turn them there is a chance they will warp again in a few days.
