2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Right Rear Rattle

I've got a rattle that is coming from the right rear side of my Jeep. The sound is mostly at low speeds (below 30 mph) and is not present when the air suspension is expended to the max height setting. Any help with this is very much appreciated.

I had this same thing happen. It's one of three things: either the cover for the rear wiper blade is loose, the back rear panel on the lift gate is loose or - most likely - is m the license plate is jiggling into the lift gate making the rattling noise. Mine was the last issue and I put some double sided tape on the plate to keep it from flopping around. That fixed it

I don't think this applies to an Overland with Quadra lift air suspension.

My summit with quadralift had a rattle a few years ago. Dealer did something with shocks or mounts. Problem solved.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Right Rear Rattle

I had one rear shock replaced on my Air Suspension after 1 year old, which was leaking. Warranty covered, so everything was good. I now hear a squeaking noise at rear driver side. It sounds like rubber rubbing on metal. Took it to dealer today, and was determined that its coming from the shock. Jeep must have changed the shock, as it now comes with a mount. The price for the squeak is $711.00 plus $182 labor =$892 plus tax comes to $1008. Really Chrysler....I didn't get it fixed, as radio can go higher than the noise. Any info why the part was changed and any better way to get this fixed?

Called another dealer and got the parts required to fix the squeak is the mount and bumper for $70. Apparently the parts listed yesterday are different today. I guess today was my lucky day
