Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
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.

- 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.
