Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

I hear it occasionally in OR1 and more often in OR2, but only when going a little faster over quick bumps or ruts. I don't like it but I was told it is normal and nothing they could do. My front right suspension was barely tight from the factory (they had to replace the CV Joints at the factory) and the dealer said someone forgot to tighten them all. I watched him check every bolt on the front right suspension to make sure it was right. It is actually comforting to see other people have the same "clunk." Anyone hear of reported failures yet?

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

With 2015 Overland from Canada, I am also banging in OR1. Not a pleasant noise. I did not contact dealership about it ... always thought it was "normal" due to design.
Should I chat about it with dealership?

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

I reported this issue at the dealer and they said the same thing.... "It is normal" and I told them that it was only with my front suspension and more on the front right. I did ask if it was because of the the Diesel engine's weight just to see if they will agree to anything and they said yes but now I don't know what to believe now. Want to go off-road on my Summit Diesel but I am afraid ill break something and it won't be covered with the warranty.

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

And another only in OR2 and was on a gravel road on Mt Buffalo from Dingo Dell to the Horn for those that know it. Everytime we hit a bump there was a almighty bang on the RHS, so I lowered to OR1 no more bang.

Car is going in for a service next week and will be checked as well as the oil weep from the sump and the sludge in my coolant bottle and my leaking EGR, just a coincidence I saw your post !!!

I still love my jeep.

Only get that bang in OR2 when going over serious rocky terrain, normal or OR1 travel no sound even speed bumps at speed that's in normal but not sport mode mud flaps hit😱😉

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

Unfortunately it is normal as many have written of this including magazine reviews especially when on lift 2 and is a rather disconcerning sound. I tried mine out over the weekend and if it were not for prior reading I would have taken it back to the dealer. Its the sound air suspension and shock combination will make when lifted.
