Jeep grand cherokee hums after replacing ball joints


look on the shaft of the drive axles about where they go into the axle tubes. Do you see a rubber grommet looking piece on the drive axle?

If so spray some penetrating lube on that area and then drive it. If the noise is gone it is those things rubbing.

Otherwise are the front tires cupped on the inner or outer tread? if so rotate the tires and see if the noise moves to the rear.

It might not hurt to double check the backing plates to make sure they are not rubbing. Along with that make sure it is not the brake indicators on the brake pads rubbing.

If nothing else you will need to get all four wheels off the ground and run it in drive to see if you can isolate the noise that way.

cv joints don't always click, mainly they click when turning, But worn ones will also make noise,, since you have to remove the wheel anyway ,, I'd check the bearing first, then move onto the cv joints

Front end making rattling, thumping noise when driving. Slowing of speed increases the noise.


i would 1st check out the front tires to make sure that they are not defective, if tires check out ok, then i would put the jeep on a rack at a garage, and check out all of the front end components, including c. v. joints and the wheel bearings.

I have a sqeaking noise from the front end. We thought it may be a u-joint, but the service center checked it out and could not find it. U-joints all checked out OK. Located in WI. The colder it gets, the...


Even if the joints appear to be OK, often they run dry and are rusted inside. Unfortunately you cannot see that unless you remove the axle and visually check them out.
You have universal joints in there? I thought they began using c/v joints right around 2000. Check that the brake pad sensors are not hitting the rotors as well that can make a squeaking noise.Before taking anything apart, try to determine which side the noise is on.

Check the drive shaft U joints. Your description is a bad drive shaft U joints and will need to be replaced, it's a simple job and you can do it with common tools. Auto Zone or Parts Source will have the U joints and loner tools, they can also give you the step by step instructions for you to get the job done. If the U joints are the OEM that came with the truck, you may want to have a garage replace the U joints for you. The factory U joints a glued in place and your going to need a torch to burn off the glue that is holding the the U joint caps. The replacement U joints will have a grease fitting and c clips retainers to keep the u joints caps in place.

My 94 Jeep grand cherokee has a thunking noise that sounds as if it comming from the front end when i turn or step on the brakes.. i checked the sway bar and nothing seems wrong.. please help


Jeeps are one of those vehicles that has some PROs and CONs. One big con is the front-end. Its never just one thing, LOL. You need to check out the front-end, thoroughly. Check all the components, check out the ball joints, tie-rod ends, u-joints, shocks, wheel bearings, and brake components. You can also inspect the wheel lug-nuts.

When making slow turns there is a grinding/rubbing noise coming from front end. Brakes were replaced. Mechanic is at a loss. could it be the u-joint?


This most likely means one of your front drive axles needs to be replaced. A U-joint would make noise going straight also. If I have helped leave me positive feedback. Thanks

Makes A clicking noise, when stopping; at 10-15 MPH.


Have you had the U-joints checked? They usually click when turning, especially the front ones. Hope this helps.
