need help, not the truck, but our jeep.
2003 wj overland. 189k tires are new, within the last 10k miles or less.
im having a noise in the front end. more like a growl, like a mud tire would make, but the tires are goodyear sr-a's. i rotated the tires today, and the sound didnt move, so its not a tire issue.
the wheel bearings are tight, and have zero play. i do know however that it doesnt mean i dont have a bad bearing.
the front and rear diffs have been rebuilt by a very reputable local shop within the last 30k(have work order from PO)
i have noticed while i had the front end jacked up that the front diff has quite a bit of play(backlash?) could that be causing the issue? i have a bad pinion bearing in my truck, and the sound changes when getting on, or off the gas pedal, but it doesnt do this in the jeep.
any help is appreciated!
