The shock mount fix is done. From reading the posts it looks like mine might be the first on planet earth to have this done. I can't really tell how successful it was since the brakes that are falling apart are rattling so much that it drowns out the shock clunking. Goes back tomorrow for repair to the brakes. It will be a simple fix. I can say that it appears that the shock mount fix has made a big difference. I hope it holds this time. 6 trips to the shop in 8000 miles is not how it should be but I remain cautiously optimistic.
6 trip to the shop is nothing in comparison with what I had to go thru in the 3500 miles a put on my 2012.
I had my shocks change 8 times in 11 months. I finally gave up and went to the Better Business Bureau and hire a lawyer to go after the Dealership and Jeep.
The outcome was:
A brand New 2014 Overland with air suspension at the same price I paid for the 2012 Limited and my car take in by dealership.
That way my monthly payment will to change and I did not had to put any money down.
Very Happy with my 2014 Overland.
At least you have a happy story. Took mine in after shock mount fix was done because the rear brakes are diss-assembling all by themselves. Apparently the factory put in the wrong combination of pads,brackets and calipers. Of course they had to order parts so a simple brake fix has turned into a two week two trip repair job.
Jeep resolution team pretends to be interested in getting this vehicle right. They really don't seem to be doing much of anything other than they did get parts ordered. They don't call back even though the only way to get in touch with them is by leaving a voicemail.
I feel your pain brother! Until the shocks screw up again (I pray not) I am on to the "Hemi Tick" not to mention a squeak in the front end. Vulgarities are the only way I could begin to express my feelings over the enitre situation.
The shock mount kit is on order for my 2012 JGC x model.
3 sets of shocks so far. The clunking is back, so I hope this works.
My warrenty is gone now and I still think its the shocks. The video of the frozen shock was exactly like mine.
Does anyone know of a replacement for the load leveling shocks that I can purchase?
Monroe makes shocks that will replace my rear shocks which is for quadralift. I do not know if those are the same shocks or not but it might be a place to start. They're sitting in my garage for when shock set #5 screws up.Rancho, I believe, makes some as well.
Yes quadralift uses nitrogen filled compressor sysem to level. However, be sure you get verification before you buy the shocks. The fix with the rubber bushings will not fit my shocks. There are some shocks-which may be the SLS a-that have piston rods which are the same diameter top to bottom. Mine are narrow to fit the upper mount and then widen below that so the bushings will not slide down the piston rod (Thanks Chrysler) Here is a link to the TSB http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_1700214.pdf
