2000 2wd Cherokee Sport.

When i turn, in and out of parking spots mostly, i hear this clicking grinding noise. Not really sure whats up, everything looks fine and i just greased everything a few months back. no change from what i normally do. I havnt even driven through any high water lately. Any ideas?

Because you got a 2 wheel drive (right?), it's not a worn U joint. I think it'll be a brake caliper. Does it disappear when you touch the brake pedal ?

Hey...well i got to go off base and what a day - about 8 different things just broke at once, not to mention the celing liner droping down too. Seriously - anyone want a 2wd XJ to drive around? i am in VA right now, probabaly just going to sell it and get a new truck after i fix it.
then get a 4wd older jeep for off road once i get to seattle.

so since i still have to fix this... it clicks when i am breaking - like slowing and turning into a parking space. its not the breaks. Neutral Shocked Crying or Very sad
no idea.

My first guess would be ujoints as well, but since it's 2WD it ain't that.

It could be a brake caliper, but it really sounds like a hub bearing starting to give up the ghost. Does it seem to be coming from one side or the other?

You wanna make sure it's a unit bearing...they ain't cheap. Jack up the front end, grab the tire and try to wiggle it, there should be very little to no play whatsoever. Also, pull the tire and look around the steering knuckle carefully. If you see any metal filings, it's a sign that the bearing is disintegrating.

I'd say bring it up here this weekend and we can try to diagnose it...but the TJ is laid up on one side (which I'll be working on) and the other side it just a pile of rims, tires and misc. parts. Rolling Eyes

If it is a wheel bearing, you'll need either air tools or a BIG ass breaker bar to loosen the nut that holds it to the axle shaft.

again, 2WD Smile it could be as simple as the trackbar going T.U.

Dammit...I keep forgetting that. Mr. Green

For 2WD, you would only have to remove the brake caliper and take out the three bolts that hold the bearing to the steering knuckle. Getting the bearing to come out of the knuckle can take a little persuasion.
