Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

The hemi tick has in many cases been a cracked exhaust manifold.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Jeep resolution team pretends to be interested in getting this vehicle right. They really don't seem to be doing much of anything other than they did get parts ordered. They don't call back even...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

At least you have a happy story. Took mine in after shock mount fix was done because the rear brakes are diss-assembling all by themselves. Apparently the factory put in the wrong combination of...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

The shock mount fix is done. From reading the posts it looks like mine might be the first on planet earth to have this done. I can't really tell how successful it was since the brakes that are...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

After some cage rattling and some heart to heart conversations with Jeep's Resolution Team I was able to get the parts expedited. They were installed Saturday. The ride is much much better. The...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Well of course the parts were not available with no known ETA. Had to call Jeep Resolution Team and let them know that I intend to go after them based on the Lemon Law. Miraculously the parts...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Bushing kits are supposed to be at the dealer today. They scheduled me for Friday. This needs to work this time. If not I plan to seek arbitration with Chrysler. Lemon laws are in place for a reason.

Re: Rear end Clunking and rattling noise! :((

New TSB out apparently today. Looks like they are going to replace the upper shock mounts.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

I mean think about it. Spend well over 40 large on a vehicle and with less than 8k on the odometer it is on it's fourth set of $1000.00 shocks and still sounds like a stone boat. Totally unacceptable.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Glad to hear that yours is fixed. Sadly I have had the same thing done to mine and a short while later the sound reappeared. I go in for yet another set in a week. Hoping it will solve the trouble.

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

In my opinion this $43,000 Jeep is a pile of junk. It has only 3000 miles and it sounds like it could fall apart at any second. Never again!

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

I agree. The noise started in mine almost immediately. 1000 miles or so. 43 large for a vehicle that sounds like it has high mileage two weeks after purchase is totally unacceptable. I like this ride...

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited Road Noise

Cold temps stop the sound. Seems to me there is a problem. I fully expect Jeep to fix the issue. 43 large for a vehicle that sounds like it is shot at 1200 miles is unacceptable. When the temps warm...
