Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler
I just had the tires replaced, shortly after that I noticed a rattling noise while driving down the road. It sounds like it is on the passenger front side. Thought maybe I had a rock jammed in there as we just had gravel laid in our driveway. It is not a thumping noise, it is more a rattling noise. I took it in where I had the tires put on, and they were stumped. Yeah, not sure if they even pulled the wheel off or not. Said it might be a u joint, but everyone said it would make a thumping noise and its definitely a loud rattling like something is dragging, but there is nothing there...any ideas?? bearings maybe?

Make sure that the inside of the rim is tight on the hub and not sitting off it
loose/ incorrect wheel stud nuts will also cause the noise

Sounds "used and abused"!!! Likely you have more than one problem. Transfer case may need linkage adjustment or rebuild. Grinding from where? Wherever the noise is, look for a problem. Pulling can be from any number of front end component failures. Your best bet is to give everything a careful inspection or have a reliable shop go over it for you. There are so many variables in this I couldn't possibly give you any real answers!!!

If the u- joints are loose, yes, that would cause the front end to shake.

Testimonial: "Yes this i very helpful thanks to x18wheeler60. I like to know when I have fixed "
SOURCE: roaring noise form front tire
How do you know the front tires aren't pulling? That's the first thing we need to know. 2nd does this roar happen when in 2wd? or just in 4wd? and is it 4wd part time? full time? or 4low? Does it do it all speeds? Mileage also would be helpful and when did this start?

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.
