Question about Cars & Trucks
We replaced the front brake pads, brake calipers, brake rotors. Replaced brake shoes in the rear. Replaced auto locking hubs to manual locking hubs for the for wheel drive. Replaced the switch on the dash for 2x2, 4x4 high, 4x4 low. Replaced the electric motor on the transfer case. There are shafts (axle, cv?) that we did not replace, we have a very annoying rattling sound coming from the front of the vehicle when we drive it, any suggestions?
Check all the plastic cowlings and air dams to make sure they are not loose and rattling in the wind when you drive down the road. Check the exhaust system for any broken or loose hangers. Hope this helps.

We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.
