Re: Rear end Clunking and rattling noise! :((

I hate that for you---doesn't it just irritate the hell out of you when you spend that much money on a vehicle and it rattles. There are 2 major threads about clunking noises in the rear end of 2011--2012 Jeeps. You are the first 13 I've heard of. I HOPE you don't have the rear suspension noise many of us have related to shocks and a few other things. Maybe it's just an axle coming loose or some major component about to fall off--that would be a blessing. Our sound is a clunk and almost like a pop when you go over anything that torques the suspension in the rear. If it is the suspension noise, go find a therapist-you'll need one. Bottom line on that at the moment is that Jeep is aware (finally) of the problem but does not have a fix for it. They put out a few TSBs but none of them quieted things down for good...the noise would always come back. Please post back and let us know what they find. Good luck!

Talking Re: Rear end Clunking and rattling noise! :((

I hope the new shocks take care of your problem. Hopefully they redesigned the mounts or something and that will be all you need. On the other end of the spectrum, I have had 3 sets of shocks put on--1)factory shock left side broken seal 2) next set left rear--comes loose-can grab it with my hand through the rear wheel and shake it back and forth 3) this set-left rear blown seal-leaks so much oil from shock it made puddles under the car 4) clunk still here but shocks are in one piece. Did I mention this started in Feb??

Sorry didn't mean to rain on your parade--I truly hope you are cured. I tell you this so that if it goes on a run like mine, it won't be too shocking (no pun intended-really)

New TSB out apparently today. Looks like they are going to replace the upper shock mounts.

2nd time they tried that. Thankfully I ordered and took new upper mounts with me to the dealer and had them replaced at same time as shocks--few weeks ago. Guess I'll know soon enough. Still quiet--3 weeks-lol!

Re: Rear end Clunking and rattling noise! :((

This does not involve changing shocks or mounts it is a new set of parts for the mount including bushings.
Read the TSB.

In your opinion will this solve the problem?
