Sound from Rear Axle or Hubs
Hey Guys,

Feel free to point me in the right direction of a thread that might contain this same question, however, couldn't find one. When roll away from my parking spot at my apartment in the morning, I frequently get a whine from the axle. More specifically, from inside the Jeep it sounds like an intermittent groan every time one of the wheels turns. After about a block the sound goes away and I don't hear it the rest of the day. Seems to happen when the Jeep sits longer than 4-5 hours. I may hear it if I come out of work sometimes and the Jeep has sat 9+ hours. I know that's a vague explanation, but I can't determine what it may be coming from the axle or one of the wheels hubs. Wanted to tap your guys' knowledge before I took it to the shop or see if anyone has had similar issues.
