Ok guys. I really need your help!!!
I have been up and down the length of the underbelly of my TJ and I cannot find anything that would obviously be causing this rattle. I took it in for a tire rotation today and the shop refused to rotate them because they said the tire wear was too choppy on the front tires. I noticed that there was more wear n the front, but not anything uneven. I examined them closer and sure enough, they are very wavy.
The tech said he thought it was in the suspension. The rattling noise is still there and it gets more pronounced when coming to a stop, almost like it were out of line, but I tested the alignment coming home from the shop and it stayed perfectly straight, between the lines, without touching the wheel. So I ruled out alignment problems. At this point, I am getting desperate. Any help, opinions, speculations, etc. are welcome. I really want to find this rattle!!!
Here's a short video where you can hear a small portion of it. It happens right after I turn right at the stop sign and you can hear it ever so sightly after going over the speed bump.
