Jeep 2004 Grand Cherokee/Limited Edition/v-8/Quad Trac II Excellent condition
Purchased 9-2014 w/64,000 Miles Currently 80,000 Miles
Over the past few months the Jeep has developed strange rattle, more like a rumble vibration or a box of rocks when going over a bump, or rough road. Hard to isolate it, front or rear and I can sometimes feel a vibration in the floor. A
I have a trusted mechanic who I have dealt with for 30 years, honest and competent. He has had it on the lift and can't find anything obviously wrong or loose, worn or anything else.
I am not a mechanic but we have replaced the sway bar links and bushings in the rear and now front. That has made things feel tighter but there is still this rumbling when you go over a bump. Can't come up with a better description than a box of rocks or similar to my idea of a shaft banging inside of a casing. But the rumble is very substantive.
I wish I had more to go on but am hoping this might ring a bell with someone who has had a similar experience and might know of a fix or what could be wrong. Otherwise everything remains great with this 12 year old beauty.
Prior to the noise starting the left front hub assembly was replaced.
