PLEASE HELP!!! Front End Noise with Vibration
 
Hey guys, I have a 2006 Wrangler X with a little over 55000 miles. About 500 miles ago i started getting this not so much as a rattle but a grinding sound with a slight vibration as a came to a stop. It only happens when i am going less than 10 mph and only happens for a brief second or two. It also happens when i am in gear going around slow turns left and right slowly, also at less than 10 mph. I had read that the noise could be due to bad u joints or sway bar and also bad exhaust manifold. But i checked u joints, sway bar, exhaust manifold and i can not find the source of the noise. I just replaced the clutch pre maturely because i had ppl tell me it was the throwout bearing. This noise is driving me crazy! Please help!

Now thinking...the shop said they did not have to replace the pressure plate. Im thinking they were wrong.

@JeepWayofLife....after all the headaches and lost nights of sleep...it turns out it was my run down duratrac tires making a front end vibration rattle. I swapped them out with the stock tires and the noise went away. My mechanic said it happens on mud terrain tires when they get worn down. Try that and see what happens. Looking for an all terrain tire now. So happy hope this helps.

Makes sense. Very warn down pro comp MT's and already blew one tire on the highway, meaning one is about 1and1/2 inches bigger than the others. Hopefully its this, because my sound keeps getting louder :)

I have the same sound, and I have warn MTR's. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

I replaced my old mud tires with duratracs and almost all my noise is gone! Much smoother ride as well
