It must be a 4wd and the grease will stop oozing out of your broken transaxle boot just in time for you to nd to replace it,and if you do any 4x4n do both to keep the wear even

It could be coming out of a broken seal on ball joints.

Why after I took my four wheel drive out the front wobbles? sometime and over 55 mph its making a loud humming sound?

For the wobbling. Can you feel the wobbling in the steering wheel? If so. 1 Check tires for knots or steel breaks, 2 bent rims. 3 Check lug nuts, Also check oil-grease in front end. Humming could very well be dry front end or bearing.

Lot of grease accumilating on front driverside lower ball joint. Possibly from front axel???? Is this a output seal and grease coming from there down axel??

take a good hard look at the front cv-axle there is a rubber boot that has grease in it if its cracked you will have grease leaking from it more common the grease will end up on the inside of the rim and wheel well. if that boot is not cracked then the ball joint was filled with to much grease and the old grease was forced out most of the time it tears the rubber boot that protects and keeps the grease in, now you can wipe off the grease and it should be fine for a few years or so.

Q1: 5.9 Rt 2002 Durango becomes bumpy at 70 mph and on but less than that it's fine what's wrong? Q2: when reversing and turning at same time make noise like. A cracking noise what's wrong? Things...

The front tires need to be rebalanced. Check them for more than 1 wait on variou parts of the rim. If the rim is truely balanced by someone who knows how to do it, they will only use weights in 1 area of the rim front and back(so 1 weight on the outside and 1 on the inside). If it cracks when you turn, the ball joints need to be either greased or replaced. Common issue. There are also turn stops that can be greased with a light film so when you get to the place where you can not turn any more, the adjustment bolt will not grind up against the stop on the control arm. Let me know if I can be of further help.

I put new brakes and rotors on my jeep 2000 Grand Cherokee 4x4 and now there is a whine in the front. What can cause this?

If it is only when your foot is on the brake pedal: A lot of new rotors come with a thin layer of wax on them to prevent rust, and so they must be cleaned before the installation with soap and water, and dried thoroughly
If it is only when you apply/release the brake pedal: You need to apply a small amount of grease to the caliper bolts (not the threaded part but the slide pin that is the long smooth part). There is a specific type of grease for this you can get at your local auto parts store.
If it is all the time: Drive around the block, then remove the front wheels and look for a shiny spot on the inside of the rim, or any other components in the area, sometimes the dust plate between the hub and the caliper gets a little bent when you do a brake job, and will grind on the inside of the rim a little bit.

Back rims are stuck on truck even with lugs loose and truck jacked off ground. I tried putting one lug back on loose and kicking tire and tried putting it in 4L and neither trick worked. Seems like they...

Wheels often sieze themselves onto the hubs, Best thing is to jack the car up , place it on an axle stand, and hit the wheel rim, from inside out, place a piece of ragon the rimwhere you will hit it, one firm followed through hit, with a sledge hammer, you will need to rotate the wheel each time you hit the rim. Once the wheel is off, do what you must and on refitting, clean the area of the hub and the wheel parts where they mate with a wire brush, ideally after that if you can get some copperslip or grease, smear some around the wheel rim inner part and the hub where they mate. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES use the grease on the wheel studs, nuts or bolts, as it can cause the wheel fixture (nut or bolt ) to undo and the wheel can fall off. Hope that helps

I have a rattling sound coming from the right front of my car. This only happens when the car is in motion and it gets louder as speed increases.

This could be cause by your wheel bearings, the wheel bearings are just a bunch of little metal bearing that are normally in grease. sometime the grease might get really dirty or actually melt out. other problems could be the brakes are rubbing on something or missing a brake mounting bolt. Maybe take a look at the brakes and inside of the rim of the tire to see if there is any wear. And then check all around that section, if it is none of that you could check the Wheel bearings, this is harder to get to and takes a while to replace, and some car it take some special tools

Grease leaking from the front passenger

Inner, (Large), wheel bearing has failed. This has caused the grease seal to fail.
Solution is to replace the bearing, and seal.

1.Check the bearing race in the brake rotor. If any pits, scoring, or other evidence of break down is present, the bearing race must be replaced also.

2.Check the outer wheel bearing and bearing race also. The inner bearing receives the most wear, but cleaning, and inspection of both bearings, and races is a standard procedure.

3.Observe the area on the spindle where the grease seal contacts. Insure that the spindle area is of good repair, and no scoring is evident.

The Black residue that you observe is grease mixed with brake dust.

The vehicle must be jacked up in the front, with safety stands placed in the proper area on both sides. Wheel chocks should be used behind the rear tires. The vehicle should be on a flat hard surface.

The wheel/tire is removed, then the brake caliper. The caliper is not removed from the brake hose, but hung from a hanger device, from the frame of the vehicle. (Small rubber tie down strap? Wire clothes hanger?)

Then the dust cap is removed, cotter pin, and spindle nut. Ease the brake rotor out, be ready to catch the outer bearing. Remove the brake rotor.

Rotor laying on two small wood blocks, (2x4's? 4x4?), blocks under rotor face. (Where the brake pads rub against)
Blocks placed so area of grease seal is not resting on them. Rotor is laying on blocks with outside of rotor facing up. (Outside of rotor faces outside of Tahoe)

Take a long punch, and tap out the grease seal from the inside of the rotor. Through the hole where the spindle goes through. Be careful that the punch is resting on the metal ring of the seal, and not the bearing race edge.
