1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Question: grinding noise in left front

 

Question

Visitor, 5.2L V8, Lebanon, MO, November 06, 2010, 17:29

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?

    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.
