Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.
When this is occurring if you swerve does this make the noise change or come and go?
Does this noise come and go based on coasting, braking, or accelerating?
That symptom fits that of a rear axle pinion bearing preload no longer adequate causing the pinion to pitch up or down and its contact on the ring gear no longer correct. I recommend finding a good axle tech and have them drive the vehicle to see what they think and outline the repair and fees that is needed.
