Hearing the noise more. It's a definite clunking when going over slight rough patches. Have the truck going in to be inspected in two weeks.

Re: Suspension 'rattle' - any ideas?

Among my Jeep's myriad issues at 3K miles, I believe I have this as well on the passenger side front...just when going over rough patches/washboard type stuff at slower speeds just feels/sounds like something is kind of loose on that corner, hard to describe.

Oh well, I'll have them look at this too when they're replacing the transmission...

If it is noisy-Rattles after the bump that's it... Mine is better now... But pretty certain the driver side is failing... Damn michigan roads...

They didn't care that you had mods (end links / lowering springs) when replacing struts under warranty?

They either did not notice or didn't bother to worry with it

Re: Suspension 'rattle' - any ideas?

Sucks, last week mine did this, definite repeating clunking when going over washboard type rough patches. I don't hear it when hitting just one bump. It's like there's a beer bottle bouncing in a little compartment in the passenger side front end. It was -12F and I was going straight about 40mph when I first heard it, now I can hear it every time go over the rough patches.

Any chance this is cold related? It hasn't been above 10F here since it first started, has anyone had this problem in warmer temps?

Re: Suspension 'rattle' - any ideas?

I think your strut is shot... but your linkage to cold weather may be something...

As it seems like the whole suspension is 'louder' (in auto) in this polar BS weather we are experiencing...

You should put it in sport and see if the noise (rattle) goes away - mine is still rattley (drivers side now) - but in sport it is just the bumps/holes

Re: Suspension 'rattle' - any ideas?

Almost forgot to mention, it is much more noticeable in auto. I'll have to pay better attention to see if it's just reduced or gone in sport/track mode.








Edit: It actually hit 28F yesterday and while I was driving home from work, I never heard it. Mine may be temperature related.
