Re: Front grinding/rattling noise 2008 WK 3.0L CRD

Bump.
Anybody got an update on what could be causing this noise... I'm experiencing the same now.

A rattling noise that seems to come from the driver side, more present on a decelaration when approaching 60k/h. The sound is harmonic to the wheal rotation. Its the same sound you would get if you wouldn't have tighten your wheals properly (clunk clunk clunk clunk)... and have already checked that and the wheal doesn't seems to move (not the bearing, not the outer tie rod). Sound is present at low speed only (from what I can hear)

Any suggestions ?

Re: Front grinding/rattling noise 2008 WK 3.0L CRD

bump again^^

I'm getting the same issues. Vibration at 65mph but feels more like the passenger side, sort of a growling/grinding noise from the front end.

I recently had the rear diff rebuilt also, which made me think something similar was happening to the front diff. I've got it at the dealership now for a front diff inspection.

Anybody get this issue fixed or have an idea on what might be causing this?

9 out of 10 times this noise is the front driveshaft CV, the end that is connected to the transfer case. Check this location and see if the CV boot is split, and if there is grease all over the floorpan, generally a good indication that is the problem.

Re: Front grinding/rattling noise 2008 WK 3.0L CRD

I was having a similar issue of grinding rattling noise coming from the mid to front of my truck underneath. Turned out it was the transfer case making the noise, being replaced tomorrow along with the shot front diff bushing, perhaps have your transfer case looked at. Best way to tell is to get it on a hoist and have someone put it in drive and listen/look underneath for it. Hope that helps. Good luck

Thanks, I'll have the transfer case looked at and report back for future readers.

Turns out the front differential is fine... I guess I'll chalk it up to money well spent on absolutely knowing the front differential is fine.

Re: Front grinding/rattling noise 2008 WK 3.0L CRD

Check the bushings on the front differential. There are 3 of them the the front diff hangs from bolted to the unibody. The are noted for failing and can cause the front diff the wobble slightly causing a grinding noise on hard acceleration or downhill decent deceleration. There was a writeup in one of the U.S. 4x4 magazines about it as well.

X2 on that, just got my truck back tonight and it's all gone, no more clunking or grinding and rattling. Now my case needed to be replaced for certain as well as the mount so I can't say it wasn't both or just one but now the truck drives mint, even shifts smoother as there's no more play.

Re: Front grinding/rattling noise 2008 WK 3.0L CRD

I had Chrysler check the transfer case and I'm told there's play in the rear drive shaft and that the u-joints are binding. $1100 for the parts alone, thankfully I'm still under warranty.

Hopefully a replacement clears up the growling/vibrations
