Sounds like your bearing. A new hub assembly is about $125 with the bearing already pressed in. Could be alignment problem too, especially if you have a lift. Also check to see if maybe you lost a weight.

Jack up the jeep and spin the wheel by hand, does it rotate smoothly? Grab the tire at top and bottom (while off the ground) and try to pull the top of the tire out while you push the bottom of the tire in. Have someone watch to see if the the tire is moving in and out, it shouldn't. Also grab front of tire at middle, and back of tire at middle and try to move in and out. You should not see any movement. If you do, your wheel bearings may be shot, also check your axle U-joint to see if it's shot. Good Luck! Countrycurt0

1998 jeep grand Cherokee 4x4 right front tire keeps locking up and makeing a grinding sound


Take the brakes apart & look for the problem

Brakes have to come apart once a year anyway,
to remove rust,inspect & lube & you flush the brake
fluid every 2 years,on all vehicles

Maybe the rubber flex hose is restricted or the calipers
& fluid are neglected & everything is just rusted & nothing
works

ABS & brake Wobble in Cherokee front end


I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee loud grinding sound when braking


It would be hard to guess at you electrical problems but get your brakes checked.It sounds like your pads have worn down to metal on metal.Very dangerous and can get expensive to fix the longer you leave it.A visual inspection can tell within minutes if this is the problem.If this isn't the problem the 2nd most common thing is a loose brake caliper or caliper mount.A friend with some mechanical knowledge will be able to check the brake pad thickness very easily and quickly with just a torch.Hope this helps

I have a grinding noise in the front drivers side wheel, jus change pads ithink its the wheel hub bearing, what do you thimk?


If the brakes are new check the front wheel bearings ASAP. If they sieze you have massive problems and expensive ones. If the grinding is ther all of the time the bearings are prime suspect.

It also sounds like a more likely problem is a seized caliper on the left side. If a caliper seizes, the braking system transfers the pedal pressure to the other caliper thus, the working caliper locks up. Pull both front wheels and look carefully at the wear on the pads. Both wheels should have the same amount of wear. If one side is worn more than the other, the side with the least wear is seized and needs to be changed.
Never heard of a hydraulic repostioning valve, but maybe with ABS there is one. I do know of a proportioning valve which apportions brake pressure front to back and also blocks braking to front or back in the event of brake line failure. Maybe see which he is talking about, should be able to explain the difference. Hope this helps.

2004 Saturn VUE AWD V6 has a harsh grinding sound in front wheels


Have you checked your wheel bearings? When these go out you can get a harsh grinding noise. This sounds like that is what it might be. Does it happen when you are going fast/slow turning/going straight? I know you said it's inconsistent but the more info the better. However, if I had to bet, based on what you have already said, it's your wheel bearings. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

CHanging out the front hub assembly on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee 4wd


Below is a link to the front rotor and all components on a 4WD Jeep Cherokee.

4-Wheel Drive
  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the front wheels.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the front wheels.
  4. Remove the calipers, but don't disconnect the brake lines. Suspend the calipers out of the way.
  5. Remove the rotor.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten wheel lug nuts to 75 ft. lbs. (101 Nm).
Best of luck!

1997 Cherokee sport 6cyl 4x4. Just replaced the calipers pads and rotors on the front. Backs are still good (drums) Bled the calipers, however, the pedal goes to the floor and the brake light comes on. ...


often crappy quality pads cause this feeling of no braking. you can bleed and bleed but major companies are selling brake parts that do not provide the type of friction and braking behaviour that the OE manufacturer required. What brand did you purchase?

Brake light is on? is that indicating you are low on fluid? if so you need to find out where it's going.
