2014 GC grinding from front

Anybody had to have an alxe replaced or wheel beering? getting a grinding noise when rolling in decel and on partial throttle too. Almost sounds like a bad Universal joint or CV, whichever they used on these jeeps or possibly a wheel bearing. Just got this jeep 2 weeks ago certified, hopefully covered under the bumper to bumper warranty provided for 3 months.

Re: 2014 GC grinding from front

Had a problem with grinding and noise when I was accelerating from a stop and even worse when I was turning and accelerating. The dealer replaced both axles but it still did it. I did some troubleshooting myself and found a big rock jammed between a skid plate and the frame. When accelerating and turning, the exhaust pipe would move due to the torque of the engine and make contact with the rock sending one hell of a noise throughout the frame. Once the rock was removed, the problem was solved. It's worth a look before looking at axles and cv joints.

Re: 2014 GC grinding from front

How are your front half shaft (axle CV joint) boots? Any seepage? If so, you're losing axle grease. They were defective on some of the early build 14's.
