Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.
How would you best describe this noise?
Dose it appear to be coming from the steering system or under the Jeep?
Dose the steering seam to turn easy either way?
There is one there issue that can cause this type of noise on rolling left turn and that can be cause by the transfer case. Is it possible the noise is coming from it?
Okay I am suspecting you may have either a gear box concern and or even a bad ball joint but with out being able to hear it I can not be sure. I will open the post back up for you and perhaps another expert may have something new to add.
Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.
Do you have a video recording of the noise so I can help you determine what the issue is?
Thanks for the reply!!!
Ok at this point you will need to disconnect the steering column from the rack and pinion, and then turn the steering wheel and see if you hear the noise, if yes then you will need a new steering column as it's serviced as a unit.. And if you don't hear the noise then it's likely a bad rack and pinion..

You are correct on a 2004 there is no rack and pinion but rather a gearbox.. Same situation, disconnect the gearbox from the intermediate shaft and turn the steering wheel and see if you hear the noise.. If yes then replace the steering column..
I see you haven't left me a rating. Do you need more help?
