Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Initially, my Jeep had this rubbing sound when I turned the steering wheel to the right. Now, I have this clunking noise or the steering wheel refuses to completely turn to the right. I believe it could be the gear box needing grease or the pitman arm. Where do I look for these so I can check it out myself??
It would be kind of hard to explain, but you may want to check your wheel bearings. Sounds like your wheel is binding. If you jack the front up, grab your tire, and shake. Sort of like you are trying to turn the wheel your self with out the steering wheel. Then do the same up and down. If you have a lot of play, then your wheel bearing is shot. And with a 4WD, you have to replace it because its sealed, where as on a 2WD, you can tighten them. For the pitman arm, and the gear box, you may have to get a haynes manual to find. But the gear box will be the box that your steering shaft goes into and connects to the tierods. Not too hard to find.
