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.

Check out: http://www.jeepgarage.org/f107/tsb-17-002-11-squeak-and-or-clunk-noise-coming-from-rear-of-vehicle-27367.html

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.

Oh, this is not just on new jeeps... My 02 wj has been in and out of shop and hanging all kinds of new parts....sounds like a bobbling sound or balls in a bucket. Very annoying :mad:

Does this apply to MY 2014? I see the bulletin says 2011 but I have this in the rear of a 2014 , oddly enough it only seems to be during or after driving in the rain?

I have a 2014 4x4 limited ecodiesel that did it. It got extremely bad after I put a old man emu lift on. Turns out it comes from the upper bushing on the rear shocks. The factory upper bushings are very soft and caused metal to metal contact. ARB sent out an updated upper bushing kit that completely cured the rear clunking noise. The bushings should fit the factory shocks as well.
