  1. Please Help- Wheel squeak and steering vibration

    JK Tech Forum
    Hi! I have 84,000 miles on my 2012 JK. Just got back from a 1400 mile road trip. Car was perfect. After about a week at home my front drive side wheel has started to chirp like crazy. Along with this, the steering wheel has started to vibrate noticeably more than usual. Sometimes this can...
  2. TJ squeaking noise while driving

    TJ Tech Forum
    My TJ has started making a loud squeaking noise while I'm driving. It seems to correspond with whatever speed the Jeep is going and doesn't change with gear shifting. By the time I'm going about 30mph it's just a constant squeal. When I'm going low speeds it's much more relaxed. I have...
  3. Squeak coming from tailgate/window area...(SOLUTION)

    JK Tech Forum
    Hey all- this is just a PSA, as it was driving me nuts over the past month or two. I began to hear a squeak in the rear of my JKU when going over bumps. Nothing awful to start with, but a definitely annoying noise. I thought originally that the noise was coming from where the soft top connected...
  4. New (to me!) JK Questions

    JK Tech Forum
    I just purchased a 2012 JK Unlimited Sport with 145k miles on it, soft top, manual for a killer price from a guy off Craiglist. It has a couple of minor issues that I am pretty sure are easy to fix but I need some advice as to where to start. First off, It does the 45-70mph vibration/rattle...

  7. So, I found a fun new source for high pitched whines!

    TJ General Discussion Forum
    My TJ developed a high pitched whine over the winter. It's only noticeable while driving at speeds above app. 30mph, and from what I could tell while driving, it originated somewhere in the left hand front quarter. And it did get more noticeable with the left window rolled down. After getting...
  8. Squeaky noise from under the jeep after trail riding/mudding

    TJ Tech Forum
    So yesterday I went out to lbl to go mudding and trail riding. Maybe some rock climbing too ? I was driving back home and everything was all well until I got onto post. I was driving pretty slow (speed limit is 25) and I hear this squeaking from my undercarriage. Well I didn't think much of it...
  9. Squeaking Clutch Pedal

    TJ Tech Forum
    I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport, ~112k miles, DD. This issue has occurred in the past for me, and seemed resolved for some time. However, it is back again and driving me nuts. When I press the clutch to shift gears, no problem. When I release the pedal, then a loud, annoying squeak is...

  12. Squeak, possibly from sway bar near wheels?

    JK Tech Forum
    Hey guys, I was goofing with my Jeep the other day and after putting something in the trunk noticed a weird squeak. I tried tracking it down and it seems to be coming from the rear sway bar links on both sides... but I'm not 100% sure. While I'm under the Jeep it sounds like it's coming from...
  13. squeaky drivetrain

    I have a 08 2dr with a solid amount of mods including a 2.5" teraflex coil lift (w/shocks), and just recently, I've been noticing a component in the drivetrain squeaking quietly but noticeably.

  14. Transmission Mount squeak?

    TJ Tech Forum
    So lately my jeep has developed a squeak. Everyday it gets louder and louder and I have been turning the radio up more and more to hide it but there is a limit to how high I want to turn the radio up before I risk blowing my eardrums out. I think the squeak is coming from my transmission. Reason...
  15. Bad breaks? Or cheap breaks?

    TJ General Discussion Forum
    So my breaks squeak very loud almost every time I hit the breaks to come to a stop. The harder I press on the breaks the the squeak goes away. I had a front end and break specialist take a look at them and he said they were fine, still a lot of life left in them. He did narrow it down to the...
  16. Squeaking front wheel

    TJ Tech Forum
    So I have been noticing a pretty loud squeaking/chirping/whatever you want to call it coming from the front driver's side wheel. It makes the sound whenever I drive in a straight line, but stops when I brake and/or turn. It may be relevant to say that I have recently installed wheel spacers. The...

    So I have searched high and low on this one and have not been able to find the culprit. I have a 99 TJ 3 Speed auto and 85% time I press on the gas (D or R) I get a squeak/whistle noise. At first I thought it was a joint in the drive shaft, but everything feels tight. Moved onto the intake...

    JK General Discussion Forum
    Hows it going? I got a 2008 that has about 25K miles, and I recently noticed a very slight quiet high pitched hum/ring whenever my foot is on the accelerator.

  20. Distributor Cap Squeak?

    TJ General Discussion Forum
    Alright. So I've had my Jeep for a month or two now, and it has developed a squeak. It's strange because it isn't consistent. Some times it's there at start up, sometimes it's there when the engine heats up, or sometimes it just comes and goes. I have a 2002 TJ SE 2.5 4 cyl manual transmission...
