Ruh Roh
 
When slowing down (not applying the brakes) and when taking off, I hear a grinding sound from the rear end. It sounds like running your nails down the chalkboard.


What could this be?


Thank You

I know the brake pads are paper thin and they are getting replaced Weds. Oh I hope I didnt **** up my rotors.

Wheel hub bearing? Slide into anything sideways lately or in the past? Or the ball bearings just went bad outta nowhere.

LMAO.,., I seriously laughed at this Joe!!!


Does it sound like one side or the other? Try having someone outside the Jeep and see if they hear it.

It sounds like it is coming from the rear passenger side.

In my olds i used to do some wicked drifts in the winter and i always wrecked the wheel hub bearings, I knew it cause of the grinding from the wheel that id hit. Always having to get new ones sliding sideways into rogue curbs or shit like that. Lol. So im going to say hub bearings but thats just a guess.

bearings would always make some noise and so I would suspect the brakes.

Re: Ruh Roh
 
and dont the bearings make a squeaky/grinding noise?

Usually depends on the severity and the speed.

Ruh-roo... sounds like a hub/axle bearing but I'm over here in Cali so it could be anything. Does it happen intermittently or can you make the sound on command?
