Question about Cars & Trucks
Does it make the noise once before the truck moves, as if the brakes are releasing, or as the truck starts moving like a drive axle ?

I'm having the same problem. My 2000 WJ is pushing 95,000 miles. I bought it with 20,000 miles in 2001 so i'm unaware of an issue before. The first time i had the warpage, i had the rotors turned and replaced the pads (organic). It worked well for a while. When the problem returned i replaced the rotors and pads (ceramic) which lasted longer. I have now been driving the vehicle in Italy for the past 2 years. The problem has been gradually getting worse within the last few months. After some research online. I've come to the conclusion of replacing my Teves calipers with Akebono calipers which Jeep upgraded future WJ's with in 2002. Along with a caliper replacement you have to replace the rotors as well. After some more research regarding slotted, drilled, vented rotors, i'm just going to go with stock replacements. Right now i'm trying to figure out if there's a better caliper/rotor combination before i commit to this order. As it is, it's around $500. Also, like the previous poster. Make sure you don't overtighten your lug-nuts. I don't know if that contributed to my problems. I've always used a hand 4-way type lug nut wrench. I recently read that they should only be tightened from 85-100 lbs/ft. I'm going to place the order for the parts which should arrive in about a week.

Sounds like it is your hub bearings. Jack the car up and check for play in the hub bearings. More than likely this is your issue and the bearings need to be replaced. Hope this helps. Thanks for an honest rating.

From your description it sounds like you have a bad CV joint, in the front.
This example shows what the CV joint, and axle together, looks like for the Drivers side. (Not advertising for these people)

take it to a mechanic....;) I have a 2003 jeep grand cherokee 4 wheel drive V8. there probably is not much difference between year models. frist thing remove the back tire you will see the caliper and rotor. check the rotor if it has deep groves on the front or back you will need to bring it in to have it turned or replaced if it is still smooth it should be ok. remove the caliper by taking the two bolts off the back of the caliper. using a pice of wire hang the caliper so it isn't dangling from the brake line. Now is the time to replace rotor if needed .Get a pair of vice grips crimp off the brake line so any trash in the caliper doesn't get into the brake system (if you let the contaminants get into the brake system it can cause costly repairs to the abs system). open up the bleeder valve most of the time close to where the brake line goes into the caliper and usually has a rubber cap. open bleeder valve, take a c-clamp place on inner brake pad and outside of caliper tighten until caliper is all of the way open close bleeder valve. replace brake pads put caliper back on recommend using lock tight on bolts holding caliper on snug fasteners but do not over tighten, lock tight will keep bolts from backing out. do the other side the same way. pull up emergency brake to and pump brake pedal to adjust brakes. bleed brakes and you are done
