Defective shock
Hi all, new to the site and as a jeep owner. I traded a Chevy Tahoe for the 2012 JGC overland. After about 1000 miles I started to hear a rattle coming from the right rear. Took it in to have it checked which was a defective shock. Had to order in and on back log nation wide which left me with the impression mine was not an isolated problem. Anyone else have this problem?

I heard the same problem from another overland owner. Bad shock that was replaced. His was probably a 2011 (maybe 2012) I cannot remember for sure though.

Re: Defective shock
Thanks for the reply Aiyer. As I read more on this site I have seen many related post about suspension noise. Guess the factory got a bad batch of shocks with so many having to be replaced by the dealers.

Re: Defective shock
Was it like a clunking/popping noise that sounds hollow when going over bumps? I have the same noise and super annoying. Do you guys have factory towing package or not?

Re: Defective shock
Mine has the tow package. Noise was sometimes like metal to metal and other times like rubber to rubber sound. It was only on my right rear, they replaced that shock and the noise stopped.

I would suggest you make an appt with your dealer to have it checked out.
