I have a knock/rattle in the rear which sounds like a bad shock or shock mount. The dealer has confirmed the noise and has already replaced the shocker mounts per tech bulletin 17-001-11 and has also replaced the rear shocks. The noise persists. I am not the only owner with this problem as can been seen from the threads on Aus Jeep forum http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/...d.php?t=112724
Chrysler Jeep Australia are saying that although they have passed the problem over to the technical people, the noise is normal for this model. That story doesnít seem to hold up as not all vehicles have. It appears that the problem could be caused by faulty shockers and even Jeep are mumbling in that direction.
I was wondering if any US owners are having similar problems. Would also be interested if anyone knew of a non-Mopar shock that would be a suitable replacement for the factory fit. At present none seem to be available in Australia.
