Question about 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
I have the same problem and the dealer changed the oil in the t case. He told me it was the wrong oil and to drive it for a couple of weeks and see what happens. It was a low growl and vibration until operating temp had been reached and only on turning. When accelerating forward the steering wheel would straighten from left or right NOW. If it was a diff gear problem it would be there all the time.

Actually, it's most likely a differential problem. if the pinion or worm gear id missing a spur, it will vibrate and grind until enough oil covers them to stop the friction...usually after 10 min or so. what they will do is use a micro lubricant that seeps into the metal to keep it lubed up even when the oil has settled to the bottom of the case, this will at least quiet the grinding for those 10 min or so until the inevitable happens and the gear shatters because of vibration, wear, etc.
if its in the front, youll still be able to drive, but only in 2WD and you will hear a loud grinding/rattling, very unpleasent sound, from the front end. have them open up the case and look at the gears instead of assuming, its 10 bolts for gods sake so they need to do their job and WORK! dont let them toss you aside, tell them what you want...sometimes thats what it takes.
