Re: Coolant on add. Squeaky front end

Can you give a description of the noise you are hearing in the front end. I have a noise that sounds like it's coming from front passenger side wheel area. Almost like a creeking sound when I go over bumps or turn the wheel a certain way.

The sound is like a creaking or squeaking like you would hear out of a old rusty suspension or a increased car.i do not know of any grease fittings. Mine you can hear over speed bumps and when you turn the wheel and raise the suspension.

Thanks. Sounds like the same noise I am getting during the same conditions with the exception of raising the vehicle since mine doesn't have that option. Did the dealer have any insight?

Dealer hears the noise but had no time to look into it.we had it at the dealer to replace a front bracket and rear widow leak.rhey are going to take a closer look next apt they also found the int wipers not working lets just add this to the list holy s**t I had a 96 limited that did not need any thig other than normal for 15 years.i have a 2005 the same it has not needed a thing I guess I have just been lucky.or bankruptcy has them cutting corners. I think you would want to prove yourself not look worse

Took mine in today for the creaking/ squeaking in the front end. Dealer said the sway bar bushings are bad but can't replace just the bushings. They have to replace entire sway bar. Had to order the part and will be in Wednesday

Mine stopped squeaking and if you cannot recreate the noise they will do nothing even thought it squeaks when you raise and lower the vehicle they won't do anything for me right now.let me know how it goes

Re: Coolant on add. Squeaky front end

I have had similar front end (drivers side) squeak and creak issues. I have had the dealer work on it 5 times this year. They have replaced the intermediate steering shaft twice and most recently they greased all bushings. It appears resolved at this point, but has disappeared and re-appeared in the past. I have the rocky road lift and they believe this is causing the issue so it is good to hear that non-lifted Jeeps are also impacted.

Well a new sway bay didn't fix my problem. Still have the noise. Now dealer says it is an upper control arm. So I guess I will see if that fixes it once the part comes in next week.
