Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
It doesn't happen all the time. I had the differential fluid changed but the problem still persists.
Get the car serviced and diagnosed? noise finding takes hands on work. not guessing.
do you need list. and are you a hands on person? many here are not just looking for wild guessing. which are you>?
i cant even guess. as you never said what corner or car makes noise. kinda key to Discovery. and cause.
my guess its the front. end.
bad wheel bearings
bad U-joints. up front.
disc caliper pistons stuck or the guide pins SEIZED.
Disc rotor damage of any kind. (inspections find most of these)
tires with too low pressure can cause odd effects. truly odd.
one tire i had , had side wall deformations, (cheap tires , factory 2nds by previous owners) and when low, they make steering wheel ripple effects///, the most odd thing ive ever seen, not 1960 when this happened all the time. (nylon cord tires or worse).
Inspect tires for damage or low air pressure, (every 30 days)
but grinding is bad news, any machine that grinds, is the sign of doom. (metal against metal dry)
the rule on noise, is LOCATION , it's exact location.

You can check fluid level by removing the rubber plug in the cover. Fluid is full when on level ground, it is just at the edge of the hole (or very close) if you are already getting noises out of there, you can remove the cover and inspect gears for wear or breakage. If you find a large amount of metal debris in the lube it tells you something bad is going on back there. Although rebuildable, it's not a home job...requires exact settings in order to operate properly. You can find good units far cheaper than even a gearset costs in any scrapyard. to match ratio, count the teeth on the ring gear and the pinion gear. the replacement MUST have the exact same number. Before swapping diffs, check all back there to make sure noise is not from somewhere else.
