Dragging Noise coming from rear end

Hello Jeepers

I am now ready to tackle my next jeep problem. The great advice from this forum has already fixed 3 problems on my newly acquired 1999 Limited 4.7

I have a noise coming from the rear end area that sounds like a brake dragging on a warped rotar.

But took everything apart and checked pads, rotars, bearings for play and grease and E brakes. All are good.


Checked rear end fluid, it looks good. I have not had the pumpkin cover off.

Wanted to get input here first before going that route to see if there were any common problems to look for???

Re: Dragging Noise coming from rear end

Unless you know the exact maintenance history, you better do a full tune up wit all fluids and filters. Noises can be very hard to solve. Is the noise speed related? Is it always there, or when accelerating/decelerating? Could be a problem inside diff, but also the propeller shaft U-joint or wheel bearing. Also the drive train can propagate noises so it sounds that it comes from an other place then it really does.

Re: Dragging Noise coming from rear end

Wheel bearings seem fine, there is some slight play in the u joints so I have already bought those and will replace this upcoming week end.

Will post a status update after the parts change.

Re: Dragging Noise coming from rear end

Make sure the splash shields aren't bent against the rotor and also that spring wire thing on the caliper isn't rubbing the rotor hat.
