2004 Grand Cherokee rear noise

I have a 2004 Grand Cherokee with 38,000 miles and there is a noise coming from the rear. It sounded almost like the spare tire in the back of the car was loose but its not. Replaced the rear shocks, the sway bar linkages and the rear ball joint. Although much better the noise is still there especially when driving slow and sounds like it is coming from right by the tire on both sides. Any ideas please help thanks.

    Rear noise like last comment sounds like coming from spare tire area. Thought maybe it was loose, but not the case. Hear it when backing out of parking spaces also. Still waiting to see a tire from my car rolling up in front of me. Of course doesnt do it at the dealers.

Looked for the same noise ( thunking ). I saw that there was sloppiness in rubber tailpipe hanger. I put a screw type hose clamp around the rubber hanger to " stiffen " it and tightened . Seems to have taken care of my noise. I guess you can buy a new hanger if you want to.

SOURCE: i have a2001 cherokee sport

Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited makes rear noise when turning left?


Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

Noise coming from rear end of vehicle. Sound changes sometimes when turning.


That type of noise from the rear end, that changes sound when turning, is usually an indicator of bad rear axle gears.You should have it checked out. They do go bad if they are run without proper gear oil.

I HAVE A RUBBING SOUND FROM THE STEERING WHEEL AND A JIFFY LUBE TECH SAYS I NEED THE LUBRICANT CHANGED IN MY REAR DIFFERENTIAL. THE JEEP IS A 2004 GRAND CHEROKEE LIMITED ANY COMMENTS?


The rubbing sound you hear may or may not be related to the differential condition. If the diff lube has not been changed in the last 12,000 miles, it's due for a change: it is recommended as normal service.(front and rear) If the diff is leaking or very low, or, if there is a noise, just replacing the lube won't help. You need to correct the problem.
The average JL tech is well trained in removing and replacing oil drain plugs and filters. Leave the real diagnosis to a trained experts. You may have a piece of plastic column cover rubbing (easy to fix) or something more serious such as a hub bearing or differential internal bearing failing.

Sounds as If You Have A Chipped Tooth On the "RING GEAR" in the Differential (Rear Alex).
Is this Where You Hear The Noise Coming from? If So Remove Diff Cover With One Wheel OFF The Ground Trans In Neutral Rotate Drive Shaft and Look Closely For ANY Abnormal Surface on EACH Tooth of RING GEAR= the Large one And The "PINION GEAR" the Small one. If you find Chip or Rough spot Diff Must Be Rebuilt. Beyond that A Pinion Bearing can Also Make A Knocking Noise But the "GEARS" Will Be a Rhythmic Noise. I Hope this is of Some Help To You Good Luck !!

Loud whistling noise while driving.


Does the noise sound as though it is coming from either the front or rear axle and does the noise change as your speed increases. If so it sound as though your axle is whining requiring overhauled if really bad.Common problem
