Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler

2000 jeep wrangler with 35 inch tires making a rattling noise on front passenger side

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

SOURCE: 4wd makes loud noise, also pops out of 4wd

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!!!
good luck!

SOURCE: I have a 2001 jeep wrangler steering wheel shakes

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

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?

SOURCE: whining/grinding noise at deceleration

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.

Front end making rattling, thumping noise when driving. Slowing of speed increases the noise.


i would 1st check out the front tires to make sure that they are not defective, if tires check out ok, then i would put the jeep on a rack at a garage, and check out all of the front end components, including c. v. joints and the wheel bearings.

RATTLING NOISE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT TIRE


The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.

Jeep 1999 wrangler Power steering pump failure


not normally
there may be metal flakes in the filter in the reservoir so replacing it would be a good idea
don't bother repairing the pump, it will be more cost effective to get a new one
if short of cash , get a good unit from the wreckers/ junk yard

I have a 2004 jeep wrangler with a manual trans rattle in nutral


It's not normal, it sounds like the throwout bearing may be making the noise. It's hard to say how long it will hold up. I've seen them make noise for a while. I would check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder.

That may be normal with 7 inches of lift and large tire. If it has not been in for an alignment after the install I would do that ASAP. 35" tires are expensive to burn up.

Check front end again for any side play (small amounts at different locations can add up. Also check that steering box is not loose on frame.Check all bushings as well. If all else fails, if caster is adjustable have another degree or two put in. (positive)

2008 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. Put wider tires on with after market rims, now when turn corners on ramps the traction control light comes on and the brakes grab on the front making it difficulot to...


Took back to store where bought tires and rims. They also put the computer on, but they drove with it attached and the tech who was in passenger seat said left front wheel not calibrated as the others so he calibrated all wheels to .05 at the maximum tire allowance. This has stopped the brakes from grabbing.

Said that the factory had programmed in for 16 inch rims. Jeep came standard with 18 inch.
Now everything working great. Don't know why dealership could not do this properly. Happy I bought tires and rims from a reputable and knowlegeable store. (Tire Craft) Thanks Mike.

Death wobble


My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches) on my stock 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you. My e-mail is bb62471(at)yahoo(dot)com.
