Hey all! Bought my 07 Sahara w/19900.o miles last Feb. and when the days started to get nicer I started to notice this noise comin from the rear...so anyway (still under warranty) took it in, the doofus at Chrysler told me they looked it over and would order new right bearings for it and said it was a service order from Chrysler, so I went along with it...a few weeks later it was done went in picked it up and left thinking all was fine; well it was just the same. I struggled with this on three different occasions (same place, same guy, and always he said he heard the noise and would correct it). We are currently at 45000k, still hasn't been fixed and now he says it out of warranty!!!!
At one point I jacked this thing up took both rear tires off, put her in gear and demonstrated for them in my shop. Nothing further has come of it...at this point, I notice this whine happening that sounds like a 5sp stick whine and this wranglers an auto....ANY TAKERS ON THIS SUBJECT? I'm baffled, is it the rear end gears? yes I do tow a boat and small trailer at times but that's about it. THE SOUND, you ask? it sounded like the brakes were grabbin, thats all I can tell you. Let me know your thoughts - Thanks
