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.

I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get clean


The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards also...my second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.

When i press on brakes i can hear a grinding noise coming from he front end, what could it be?


Brake pads are worn. That noise is the sound of the backing plate for the brake pads hitting the rotors. You will need to replace the pads and probablt the rotors. When the brakes go metal to metal like that it typically destroys the rotor.

Please help....I replaced the front brake pads on my 07 Saturn Aura because there was a squeaking sound. I took the old pads off and there was plenty of meat left and the rotors look very good. I didnt...


check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.
