Hello all, just bought my first jeep on Monday(now friday)..98 TJ 2.5L 5spd 4x4, blah blah blah..anywho..
took it for a little jeep ride on wed, local state roads and a gravel/dirt county road..we managed to find a little mud hole and a bit of fun..
took off in it the next day, noticed a scraping noise coming from the front driver side area(i believe anyway) that appeared at about 20mph and would match acceleration speeds, not necessarily getting louder, but just increasing the rate at which it "scraped"..sounds like a scraping noise is the best I can describe it.. after I noticed this I took it to the car wash..and tried to pressure wash everything up out of the wheel assemblies..no difference
today i jacked the front up and checked for play in the tires..everything seemed to be in check..I did turn each wheel individually to see if the noise was present..noise was present on drivers side , but not on passenger's side..4wd seems to be working fine
any ideas..again I'm new to this jeep thing and off-roading so I'm not real sure whats going on but it does worry me..thanks guys
