Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Usually when turning or coming out of a turn on a tight circumference is this deep grinding sound in the front wheels. Seems to be worst when turning right. Car is Overland AWD model with 90K miles but has done this since we bought it in 04 with 8K miles on it. Have taken it to the mechanic several times but can't seem to duplicate it when we try to show them and then it goes away for a time.
Sounds like the Hub bearings are bad. These are located behind the wheel after taking off the break calipers and rotar.
Is it a low grrrr, or a Pop pop pop sounds?
Pop pop is the bearinngs in the HUB which can be costly depending on the type, if there sealed hub bearings or the kind that can be replaced without buying an all new HUB.
If its more of a grrrr, its probably the Rotars grinding against the break pads. This can occure if the caliper is not pressing correctly and your burning off the break pads un-evenly or you just have cheap break pads.
The dealer ships dont like admiting theres a probalem because its cost them to replace it for free. Also, if you go back three time sor more because the issue cant be fixed, it falls under the lemmon law and they have to replace the vehicle with and equivalent or better one.

This is probly just the tire rubing the inside wall of the finder. if that is not the case then the axils is probly pulling out of place and that could be the problem. do a back ground check to see if your car was recked in the past if it has then your frame could be bent far enoff when you turn right it will pull out farenoff to make it grind but it wont let it slip. so let me know
