Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose

How do you know the noise is not from the bottom end. It could be a rod bearing or wrist pin and when you removed the rockers this took the power and compression from the cylinder which puts less stress on the bottom end. While running does unplugging the injectors one by one on the left side effect the noise?

Well this information was not helpful as this was something done before as I said it in the balance shalf area so if I don't get I proper answer by today I'm going to take the shalf out and check to see what the problem so let me know if u can think of something else as this is a common problem this vehicle has 150000kms and the noise came on suddenly not like when a bearing going and gradually get louder as I'm a mechanic myself this is why I'm asking a specialist in jeep with experience to give me a proper answer and this is your only answer this is not what I was looking to hear let me know if u come up with something more
