Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

2013 Laredo X, w/tow package and only 1500Kms on the speedo.
Has that clunking sound at low speeds.
Open the lift gate and give it a light bounce and you can hear a noise coming from aprox the top of the rear shock mounts!
Got my dealer to pre order a pair of rear shocks (AE)
They where backordered for about a week.
Hope to have them installed in the next couple weeks.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

When I had the shocks replaced the service adviser gave me the part# that was already on my Jeep. I have the new AE shocks and after the trip to the beach they started clunking again. I hope there is an AF version in the works that will take care of this.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Just wanted to chime in.. i got my 2014 about 2 months ago.. and for the last few weeks i have had the noise..

To me the best way to describe it is what a loose/worn ball joint sounds like. mine doesn't going over bumps, like going up a driveway.. or any sharp bump will give it a nice thump sound like a bad ball joint

This is not the problem reported it has to be in bumpy roads at about 15 mph or less

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

I had the clunk a few months ago. My dealer changed out the shocks and it seems to be fine so far.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Does anyone know who makes these shocks for Jeep? Or are they made in house?

The shocks are not the problem. The shock mount is the problem

Oh. Well do we know who makes the mounts? Wonder if there's an aftermarket solution for this.

There is now a per jeep officials 40,000 unit back order on the AF part code.
No one is touching that problem until jeep fix it.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Took my Jeep to the dealership last Wednesday. They kept it until Thursday afternoon shocks and shock mounts are being replaced. I have the AE version now so we'll see if they put the AF's on. If this is a fix then woohoo! If not, well we'll see lol.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Well its about 7 weeka since I went on my packing grease frenzy above the shock mounts and the joist . I mean I put every bit of lithium grease I could get in there. Also placed Li grease over all articulating joints where you can see the rubber dust boots. The packing above the mount seemed to be the clincher. Anyway after 4 sets of shocks, this is 7 weeks of quiet. will keep you posted
