1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Q&A
1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Question: grinding noise in left front
I had a grinding noise start in the left front wheel area about a week ago. Was told it was probably a wheel bearing, so that has been replaced but the noise is still there and getting louder. It increases with your speed and stops when you stop. What could it be? - Visitor
Might seem simple, but have you checked the tire for abnormal wear? "Cupping" or high and low spots on the tire at any point can cause the noise you describe. Also, is your vehicle a 4x4? There may be other components involved that are rotational that can become noisy. - DaveJHM
if it is four wheel drive it could be an axle u joint or cv joint ,if it makes a clicking sound when turning the wheels while in four wheel drive that would be my first check - Visitor
when im driving my jeep, the whole front end start making a grinding noise but only when i make a left turn, going uphill, and when its wet out. my grandfather said he thinks it could be a cv boot...
i have a 04 grand cherokee overland...when i hit the brakes if i hit a bump or turn right in makes the noise...but if i turn left i have no noise...and ideas on what this problem might be?
Excessive gear noise can indicate differential bearing failures.
