Re: HELP i can't figure out this front end noise on my wj

This might be a bit of a stab in the dark, but have you removed the disc to see if there's anything trapped behind it? I say this cause mine wine was making a similar noise, but it wasn't as constant, more like it whined once every full rotation. But it was the same sort of high pitched squeal.

I took the disc off to find a whole load of crap behind it. Cleaned it up and the noise was gone.

This is alot of extra work, but can you swap the hubs side to side and see if the noise follows.

If it is the CV coupling, the noise probably will change when making a turn. Did you try that? If the noise stays the same, its probably the wheel bearing.

Re: HELP i can't figure out this front end noise on my wj

I'd say hub bearing. That is exactlly the sound I had coming from the right front. Mine would come and go. It made no difference as to the outdoor temp. or if I had driven awhile or not.

I started a thread like you did and later I followed up with some info concerning where I got my bearing hubs, the three holding bolts (there size, thread and length) and where you could rent a puller to get the hub out without using a hammer! I do both sides and the noise is gone. Other than later on having an issue with the lug nuts, things are good. Your video is a good way of describing the noise!

Good Luck
