Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
2000 jeep cherokee classic w/ 183,000 miles. it gets worse when I start turning out of my parking spot and it will go away after I get above 20 mph. does not come back after I get the jeep moving and I generally don't hear it except when I first start it up and move it. also made the sound when I had to put it in 4wd to get over a dip in the road that was dirt to get onto pavement. the tires jump pretty significantly on pavement in 4wd but it works good. I think it might be a u joint going bad.
I agree with you, sounds like one of your front driveshaft,or axle shaft u-joints, is probably dry and that is what is causing your noise, those are fairly easy to replace if you don't have a press just use a vise a hammer and a socket about the same size as your caps, oh one more thing you may want to check first, jack up the front put it on jack stands and try to wobble your tire on either side up and down, if you have movement it's likely your wheel bearing..

the tires make steady noise , check the wheel bearing as noises get high and low at the same speed , and i also would check for diff if it's 4wd.

it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Testimonial: "Rotating the tires didn't seem to change the noise. They are rotated and balanced every 5000 miles. There's still about another year's tread left. "
