Re: Overland frontend has anyone had theirs fixed

I would have the dealer switch out the tires. See if new tires eliminates your noise?

I'm guessing it's the tires as well...the problem is when they swapped out wheels/tires with a different jeep, they were the same wheel/tire combo, correct? I'm hoping the tires are my main issue and plan to have my dealer swap with either laredo or the polished 18" tires to test.

Re: Overland frontend has anyone had theirs fixed

just picked up jeep from service they replaced the power steering rack and they replaced the shaft that comes up from the power steering rack to the fire wall.the noise and vibration seem to be greatly reduced i actualy think it is fixed but i have to go for a longer ride later geting ready for the family easter dinner kind of hectic here.what i hear and feel now is just like when it started and progresivly got loader or it was there all the time and just never noticed and what ever part failed would just resinate loadly when on the correct pavement like when rubbing the rim of a good whine glass with a wet finger.as far as i'm concerned it is fixed i can live with what is there and i want to replace these tires anyway,has anybody put pirelli scorpion atr's on their gc yet.the web site i found for tsb's was spot on i guess they do not like having us be access this info.

Re: Overland frontend has anyone had theirs fixed

well after several days of driving the noise is still there the day i brought it home before easter it was very cold and windy.tueday i drove my son to ypals over the mountain it the noise just had to show it ugly head.i have a apt at one of the larger dealers in my area who also has a mercedes dealer ship and as far as i know our beloved grands are dased on their outdated 500 chasis.i hope they have alot more brain power than the other dealer they told crysler it is unfixable crysler told me it is a problem and they do not have a fix at this time in short the dealer does not want to look bad for saying i need help(it was a sign when the mecanic put it up on 4 jack stands and said get in lets spin the tires and see what we here).thanks every one for your help.i will report back when i have more info

Re: Overland frontend has anyone had theirs fixed

thanks for the info my jeep will be going in to have 4 tires replaced hopefuly by crysler seeing my bad rack that they never found, has rounded all 4 tires and with only 12000 miles on them.the dealer we are going to now wants to replace the tires first and move on.i can't wait to enjoy driving my jeep again and use all my menzerna products to correct the paint (lot boy has washed car several times)and shine it up with dodo juice.

Are you going to go with the same tires? It will be interesting to see what happens if you are able to go with a different tire. I frankly can't stand the way the GYs make so much noise on grooved roads or any hwy that is not smooth black top. They seem to make way too much noise.

Re: Overland frontend has anyone had theirs fixed

still have the noise in the front end i just had the front end alligned as per crysler, noise is still there.just like after the rack was replaced it was quite at the start and after about 50 miles the noise is back and getting loader.now i do belive it is the tires and they are not going to correct them selves.crysler was willing to replace the tires until i went to the new dealer and the district manager who never seen the tires said it was normal wear i have 14000 miles and all 4 tires are worn down past the tread blocks on all 4 tires.
after visiting several tire shops calling my crysler contact talked to good year they are willing to discount tires 50% and said they would even do beter after seeing the milage would not quote over the phone they want to see the od reading.they want to see what crysler will do first.i do not think i should have to pay for 4 new tire to get rid of this noise seeing the bad power steering rack and front bearing is what caused the problem to begin with.
