Question about Jeep TJ

1 Answer

When I make a right hand turn. The rear right wheel makes a grinding skweeking noise. I was wondering if it could be that the brakes are causing this noise or maybe there is something wrong inside the axle shaft. The tires move freely and noise free when it is jacked up off the ground

    I too experience this prob; however, the noise precipitates itself in the left rear wheel when I turn sharply and slowly either to the right or the left. The noise is exaggerated on left hand turns. This reported to a Jeep dealer before drive train warranty expired. Their solution was to add a special synthetic lube to the differential (at 88,000 km approx) This did work until recently (124,000 km) Currently, all my attempts to solve the problem - drain and refill differential - replace emergency brake shoes which were disintegrated - have ben in vain. I may be looking at having to replace the rear end. I question if warranty would still be in effect since the same was prob was reported and documented during warranty period?

Identify cause of right rear wheel stuttering in turns (either direction) at low speed. No unusual noise.


Is your car a rear wheel drive? If so, the limited slip differential grease is low...if front wheel drive could be right rear strut/shock assembly is totally worn out...wheel bearing maybe, but usually makes a grinding noise...does applying the brakes affect this stuttering? Should be a free inspection at most quality repair shops...good that you notice this before it gets worse...

Grinding from rear wheel and turning right but when jacked up wheel turns but won't when wheel is off?


It could be your wheel bearing. The grinding might be due to the weight of the car pushing on the bearing, when you have it jacked there is no pressure, so no grinding. Also, be sure your brake pads are good, they can cause a grinding noise but it would also probably, but not necessairly, make the noise when jacked up.

What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

When I turn the steering wheel to make a right hand turn it grinds and clunks.


take a look at the front drive axle joints and also wheel bearings. this noise may be due to a bad ujoint and as you turn the joint binds up and makes noise, same as a bad wheel bearing. the wheel bearing would make more of a grinding noise as it doesnt hold the wheel and brake rotor in place and the rotor may be hitting the caliper bracket so i would start by checking this stuff first. good day.

Grinding niose towards rear of suburban when i coast. Does it every time coasting down hill or slowing to stop or turn. Echos through drive shaft at rear end.


GM rears are known for this noise it is usually caused by a pinion bearing that is coming apart or what they call bernelling ( I am not sure I spelled that correctly) it is little pits in the cones in the bearing it comes from lack of lubrication or the pinion seal leaking,you could pull the rear cover and drain the fluid into a dark pan and look for debris or alot of silver color.

It makes a grinding noise and only on the passenger side. just started making noise when turning


Check brakes, then check axle bearing. If brakes check out OK, then jack up so the wheel is off the ground, put car in neutral, now spin the wheel and put one hand on the coil spring, if you feel any roughness, the bearing is bad.

Scraping grinding noise in front passenger side wheel. Could it be a replacable wheel bearing?


When both a scraping and grinding noise is heard from a wheel, it typically indicates a problem with the brakes, not the bearings. If when the brakes are applied, the noise changes, it does indicate a possible brake issue. I would first check the brakes and then take a close look at the bearings, as they can still cause the grinding noise, but not typically the scraping noise. Hope this is helpful.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.
