Sounds like either worn brakes or bearings causing the squeaking. As for the clunk at the floor, I was having a clunk like that with my 04. Turned out to be loose body mounts. It would happen during sudden acceleration and some bumps.

holes turned out to be transmission mount

holes I took it to the dealer ship because its under warranty from the dealership. The techinican is almost positive it is the front u joints. I'll know for sure on thursday when it gets fixed and will definately keep you posted.

OldSkull75 Thanks Jerry! Im having the EXACT same 2 issues with my 2002 4 banger. I've been crawling under it everyday for 2 weeks trying to find the clunk.Also have a squeak from my rear passenger wheel thats driving me nuts.
holes: keep me posted on what you did to fix it.
thanks!

holes Alright, well I'll try both of your ideas and follow up on this. Once again, your wealth of knowledge is always appreciated.

Without feeling and hearing how dramatic the clunk is, not necessarily. But I would guess a broken motor mount at this point before a broken transmission mount... not that either is guaranteed to be the source of the clunk.

Jerry Bransford Get on/off the accelerator pedal while you watch your transmission shifter without your hand on it. Does the shifter move left-right as you accelerate/deaccelerate? If so, that is a broken motor mount. If the shifter doesn't move left/right as you get on/off the gas pedal, try watching your front suspension (get on the floor & watch from the front) as a friend turns the steering wheel back & forth alternating between slowly and quickly. The tires should be on the ground & the engine running. Watch for unwanted movement anywhere in the front end.

If you don't see any unwanted movement, I'd start looking at the bushings in the shocks then the control arms. Are the bolts tight that hold that stuff together?

Finally, make sure none of the welds that hold the control arms have failed. I've had two failed control arm welds where stress tore the control arm mount away from the axle.

holes The clunk is really bad when accelerating quickly but goes away once you hit about 20 and maintain speed. It seems like it does it when it's turning but not nearly as bad and clunks just once or twice. Does this confirm one of your ideas above jerry?

Jerry Bransford A heavy clunk makes me think bad control arm bushing or broken motor mount or broken transmission mount.

AC3tj thats really weird i drive a 1997 2.5 and mine just started doing exactly the same things the squeak and occasionally the clunk i can feel on my floor. let me know if you figure it out i would love to know.
03-21-2010 03:48 PM
cherokee kid I would check the u-joints. Have you lubed them recently?
03-21-2010 02:23 PM
holes any idea about the squeak in the front tire?
03-20-2010 07:28 PM
CO4X4 Check your sway bar links. One of mine came apart and It make a clunk.
