We upgraded both the front and rear end gear to accomadate the 33in tires with a 4inch lift I was putting on . Now after about 4500 it sounds like a sreeching/ howling / winding noise only when I accelerate or let off the gas . Ive changd all the u joints thinking this was the problem but its still there . The shop Ive tken it too are usually good and have taken care of it 4 times . Not sure If I should take it back and if so where to start . I do not take it off road and I drive it daily back and forth to work . Any suggestions would be great . If you tell me cange change shops then recommend one in the upstate area of SC.
Id take it to a dedicated offroad shop.
It might never see dirt, but a lot of excellent mechanics at normal shops will have no idea what to do with offroad lifts and parts. Heck, the jeep dealer i bought mine from had to outsource the work to get rid of my death wobble because they clearly didnt know how to do it and they were a huge dealership.
Do you have all of the accessories (SYE, etc.) that you need to run that big of a lift?
