Re: Rear suspension noise

I'd personally try the TSB first. But if it persists then there's no reason to keep fighting with Jeep when the fix is relatively inexpensive. The stock upper shock mounts are very soft and (I believe) poorly designed. They can't take the load from the stock Jeep load leveling shocks (that come with the trailer tow package without air suspension.) If you tow a bunch, like I do, those stock rear shock mounts fail very quickly.

Re: Rear suspension noise

This is such valuable information. Even though my wj is a 2002 I have a factory tow hitch as well. I have been chasing, or I should say, my mechanic has been chasing this noise . I have been paying the bill for over a year!
With lots of new parts. I even have new shocks....but not the shock mounts.
My wj is going in this week to have this checked . Could get in last week

QUESTION: do any of you find its more noise on the right side than the left?
But, it simetrical.

Re: Rear suspension noise

Glad to be of help. As far as the noise, I hear it on both sides. Usually only hear it in city driving over light bumps in the road, not much on the highway or heavier bumps.

Re: Rear suspension noise

Yes! It's quite prominent at speeds between 20-35. Especially over a bumpy road with imperfection. On a smooth road there isn't a sound...crazy:confuse
