Question about 2005 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

My 2005 Jeep Wrangler has a "rotating" clunking noise in the rear when braking. Have had a defective rotar turned, the brakes checked, the drive train checked, the ujoints checked and the problem stops for a week after the mechanic works on it, and then it comes back worse than ever. Any suggestions? The mechanic now thinks it's the rear control arm bushings...did I mention I also just spent $500 to replace the steering stabilizer and the track bar? I also had the bottom undercoated, the tires rotated and balanced, all in the last few months.

When you say you had a defective rotor turned do you mean it was skimmed due to warping.if so, skimming is not any good for a warped rotor, replace both sides with new asap,or the vibration will cause bushes to fail at worst.
warped rotors are the bain of all modern cars as makers dont use ventilated types (too expensive)

Rear wheel clunking noise and squeeling noise sometimes


This sounds like it could either be brakes or a wheel bearing going bad. You can check this by removing the rear wheel and inspecting the brakes making sure the caliper is mounted on tightly and brake rotor isn't showing uneven wear. Also be sure to check the brake pads to make sure that they are not worn down to the squealer tabs. Most new pads are roughly 3/8" -1/2"thick. and will start squealing if at about 1/8"-1/16" thick. If everything checks out fine then check the wheel bearing by simply jacking the wheel up off the ground and grabbing. Now try to move it side to side or up and down, it should have no play what so ever. And spin the wheel to listen for screeching or squealing, it should rotate smoothly with no abnormal noises.

Struts noise?


I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport and after about 10 minutes of driving I can hear and feel a clunking noise coming from underneath the Jeep. I have changed the U Joints on the front driveshaft where


Sound like you are having axle issues. Check the front and rear axles on a lift or off the floor on stand. Rotate the wheel by hand in foward and reverse rotation. If you hear click noises or hard to rotate then I am pretty sure the axle assembly are going bad. Also while the jeep are off the floor check your transfer case for oils for any metal shaving.

I hear a loud clunking noise coming from the rear of the truck every time i take off from a stop


Three things: Either the rear brakes are releasing, causing a clunk, try service and adjust rear brakes. If not, go to the drive shaft, check the u-joints and/or jack up the rear of the truck and rotate your tires by hand to see if there is a clunk in the rear end itself.

it could be your brakes , on most brakes there is a wear tab that makes a high pitched squeeling noise when it contacts the rotor. this is in place to let you know your brakes are due for replacement. if it is not your brakes then it could be a wheel bearing.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

Clunking noise while turning/hitting bumps


Hay I would check your sway bar in the front .The bal may have came out of the seat located under front wheel well. Also they could be just loose. Check by rocking your jeep side to side .
