Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

Three types of suspension available in wk2. Ordinary fitted to petrol V6 and V8 without quadra lift and Load leveling suspension fitted to all CRD models except where quadra lift specified.

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

Load Leveling suspension is faulty, and cause a thumping/banging noise from the rear of the WK2

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

I have just come from Jeep Service at Mansfield and this is their latest take on the clunking from the load levelling shocks
Chyrsler stand on this is that the clunking is normal and is a characteristic of these shocks.If you wish Chyrsler will change th shocks to standard units however you will be required to sign a waiver.
This is all they told me today but I’m becoming a regular visitor as my GC is loosing water at the rate of about 1 litre per 1000k’s and they are unable to tell me when the Gasket will become available to fix it

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

I have the same problem in my 2012 Laredo diesel, delivered 2 weeks ago. Dealer says Jeep are working on the problem but service guys say they can't hear the noise.

You might want to direct the service guys to this site or the Aus Jeep site http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/...d.php?t=112724 It's still a big problem with a very slow resolution. Dealers seem happy to replace the shocks with the standard one which stops the noise but Chrysler/Jeep, despite knowing for many months now, still haven't come up with a fix for the self levelling shocks which are the standard fit on the GC Diesel without QL suspension.

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

I have a 2012 WK2, with standard suspension.
I have the knock/thump also.

I called my dealers service desk and they said that they have heard about the issue but have yet to see a GC come in with the issue.
I have an appointment on 06/18/2012.

I will post an update after the service and let everyone know how it goes.

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

I called my dealer and asked if they had ordered the part(s) needed in anticipation for my up coming appointment, they had.

I asked for the part number and told them that I wanted to share it with the jeepgarage forum as there are a lot of members who are having this same problem.

He gladly gave me part #68029590AD and said that you need 2 to complete the repair.

Hope this helps

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

Just want to make everybody aware that there are two threads talking about the same issue. This and Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

Maybe they can be merged?

Re: Wk2 Rear Knocking Noise Aussie GC Laredo

Speaking of shocks, my new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a very uncomfortable ride. I live in New Orleans and we have less than perfect streets. This Jeep feels like it is walking instead of riding. I feel every bump in the road, every rock, every line in the concrete. This is the worse driving vehicle I have ever driven. It feels as if there are no shocks.
