So I had my second set of dampers replaced. This time with the "AD" version and so far I am happy. Put around 2k miles on it and nothing. Although there is some relation to the temperature as they SLS shocks seem to be calmer when colder?

There is also a discussion ongoing to see if the "improved" standard shock mounts could be adopted to fix the issue or to put some rubber isolation between the wheel well and the shock mount. We will see.

There are several TSBs out to fix the clunking for the normal shocks and the SRT8 shocks, but none (NONE) for the SLS so far.

To recap some knowledge from the other threads:

Re: Rear clunking/rattling noise

So if I take this knowledge to the dealership (I'll be going to a Dodge dealership) should they know about the AD Shocks or will I have to explain the whole thing to them. I guess I could visit a Durango Forum and see if they have the same issue.

Check the TSB's for one pertaining to the rear shocks with non-load leveling. I know there is one that is out.

I have the Load leveling and I recently had my passenger side rear shock replaced with 'AD' and have had no problems in the last 1500 miles. My shock started making the creaking noise around 8500 miles when I was up north in VT. It did seem to lessen with a rise in temps but was still noticeable with out the radio on.

Hopefully this 'AD' type shock works for good.

Re: Rear clunking/rattling noise

I didn't have a TSB...Mine are load-leveling. Your rig which doesnt have load-leveling rear shocks, has a TSB out which I'll try and search for so you can reference it when you go in. I just took the service manager out for a quick ride around his parking lot when I got there and he told me to pull over and he hopped in the back. Within 10-15 feet he said go ahead and park we'll pull it in and make sure its the shock. 20 mins later I was on my way with a shock on order. Which took two days to come in and an hour of my time for them to put it on.

No problem, glad to try and help.

I found TSB# 17-002-13 - which is for the non load-leveling shocks. Unfortunately it does not include a new shock as the first fix but it's a start.

If you go to Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Grand Cherokee Service Bulletins and Recalls there is a list of all the TSB's out for the WK2's. Its a good future reference for you.

Hope that helps.

Mines still good with 10,000+ miles on the AD version. My shocks made noise the colder it got so we'll see this upcoming winter.
