    I never thought about the bearings !! I will pull em tomarrow and check both sides. I don't want to have it dry on the spindle.Or I sure I'll have replace that too.Thanks !!

  • Rick Jan 23, 2009

    Thank you for your fast reply.I drove the car and the noise does go away when wheel is turned going straight.Do you have any idea on cost of such repair.I am a diy.I am not a pro but I can do most jobs.Thanks again for your help.

  • Rick Jan 23, 2009

    I looked it up it's sealed.I found a pair for 150.00 I can do both sides.If one went second one not to far behind.What would a fair labor cost be If I supplied the parts.I do have a local guy that I trust but to have a idea would be of great value.Thanks again.This site is fantastic you have been a very big help.

    Ok, I am going to tackle this myself.I have access to the axle nut wrench and a puller. I am doing both sides.It will save me time down the road.Is there a brand that you would say is the best to pick-up.I have seen Timken ?What do you think of this brand.Again thank you all of your help,this site is very helpful and it takessome of the stress of knowing what's wrong.

    2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, V8. Noise front end right side.

    Noise while going 20 MPH and turning to the left. At high speed above 30 MPH noise goes away. Turing to the left causes the noise to increase and to pop periodically. Jacking up the right front wheel and turning the wheel no noise can be heard. Even running in 4 wheel drive with only this wheel off the ground so it will turn causes no noise. Only at 20 MPH turning left can the noise always be heard.

    It sounds like grinding or something isn't lubricated enough.

If it is a roaring noise it is probably a wheel bearing going bad

    i think this model has sealed bearings nad have to replace the whole hub assembly. while driving turn the steering wheel a little to shift weight the side that is bad should get louder when the car shifts to that side and less noise when weight shifts off of far as bearing let me know and i will look up tommorow to seal if it is sealed or not

    alldata labor guide shows 1.0hr per side. so two hours labor total. price will depend on shops labor rate.

Remove front Rotors

To remove the front rotors,you first need to support the vehicle with a jack stand.Then remove the wheel.
Once the wheel is out of the way you need to take the two bolts off of the backside of the caliper, then compress the caliper and lift it off of the rotor.
Now you should be able to easily remove the rotor from the Jeep.

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.

How to replace front wheel stud on a 2002 jeep grand cherokee 4x4 limited? Do you have to remove the caliper to pop broken stud out or is the rotor sufficient enough to get it out?

Yes - the caliper needs to come off..

Take the rotor off.. You proably just need to replace the rotor.. The lug bolts are not usually removable..
It a good dea to replace both rotors - to keep the breaks balanced..

Loud hum Left front wheel area

If it sort of whines then a wheel bearing is shot

Question :
If you go around a corner the noise should get less? as there is more lateral strain on the bearings

A very loud rumble would be a drive shaft problem

Its has to come of from the back. Is a 45 min job in at the dealer, so it is a big job. All the bolts for taking it off are in the back,plus you have to take every thing of thats in the way, tire rod end, etc.
