Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima

Clanking noise coming from rear of 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a similar problem as the 97 Maxima mentioned. I changed all 4 of my shocks on my 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee as well as the rotors and afterwards I began to hear a small clanking noise when going over small bumps in the road. It sounds specifically like it's coming from the left back wheel. The mount bushings on the rear shocks are not installed individually but instead comes imbedded in the shock itself. I was wondering if and how is it possible to install this shock incorrectly? Installation seemed pretty straightforward. Will incorrect torquing cause this to occur? Thanks for your help.

    I posted incorrectly. I was trying to state that I had a similar issue as the 97 maxima but the site ended up placing that as my car. I actually have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee, in which I installed Gabriel shocks all the way around from autozone. Now I'm hearing clanking coming from the driver's rear. Is there anything specific I should be looking for with the bushing?

My 1995 Jeep Cherokee is making a clunking sound all the time. It sounds like it is in the back passenger side. What could it be?


have the u joints inspected as sometimes a noise is not coming from the area you might think it is.the noise could be a bad shock on that side or a rear spring bushing or spring problem.have it checked out,its a 95 so chances are you have not changed the shock and its worn out making noise.if it is change both shocks.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited makes rear noise when turning left?


Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

Will 96 rear end work in a 99 grand cherokee


A 96 Grand Cherokee rear end is not compatible with the 99. The Grand Cherokee changed body styles in 99, and among other things, the bolt pattern for the wheels changed.

2002 grand cherokee thumping noise coming from rear susp.


I had a similar problem about a year after having rear shocks replaced, turned out there is a round metal tube through the bushing at the top end of the shocks, if you tighten the mounting bolt down too tight these crack and allow a bit of movement which causes the clunk. Replacing the shocks (at another shop) solved the problem - two years ago, no recurrance. Take out the shocks and check that little metal tube (I'm sure it has a more technical name); if it is cracked, try to find replacements (otherwise you have to replace the entire shock) and be very careful when reinstalling them not to tighten the mounting bolts down too tightly. Don't know if maybe there is a torque specification for these mounts, perhaps a Haynes or Chiltons manual could help here. Good luck.

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8


Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.
