Hi,
I've been told that my left rear wheel bushing is bad on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I do hear a knocking sound whenever I hit a bump in the road. I have also been told that except for the noise, not to worry about it, it won't do any harm.
Is that true? Also, what can I expect to pay if I decide to replace it?

im a little confused by what busing you mean. bearings dont usually make a clicking noise, its usually more of a whining, if its a bushing, any bushing relating to the suspension could cause that, if its a suspension thing, its not much to worry about, if its a bearing, the longer you go, the worse it will get, it should be replaced and price will vary greatly depending where you take it or if u do it yourself.

Thank you. I've been told it's the wheel bearing. It makes a thumping, knocking noise when I drive over any kind of bump. They also said the same thing you said in that it's nothing to worry about as far as safety etc.
