Rear suspension noise
 
I have a 2X2 Hemi JGC Summit with 1500 miles. When I go over a sharp bump or even a speed bump at any speed other than crawl I get a "thump" in the rear end. I took it in and they said the spare tire was a little loose so tightened it but it still does not sound right and makes a noise. Does anyone have anything similar? The Jeep drives great but the sound makes does not seem normal at all. I hav test driven several and i dont recall hearing this. Thanks:confused:

With it only being a 2x2 half of it is probably draging on the ground with the 2 wheels that are missing.

Possibly the rear jounce bumpers, there was a TSB for squeak/clunk in the rear, they are rear struts.

I had the same thing, though this was before the most recent TSB. But they called it Shock Rumble and the dearler ordered new shocks. Though I still hear the clunk but not as consistent as it once was. I'm bringing mine back in for the TSB "Cure" we will see.
