This is my first post here, and I have been searching for about an hour for an answer. I helped my son pick up a 97 Limited Grand Cherokee with a 4.0L engine, Q-Drive.
Its very clean, 96,000 miles, was wreaked at one time around 61K miles. Drives great, but has the howl around 55mph. We have a '96 GC/4.0L with a bad engine, so I thought we'd be able to swap out anything we'd need to fix the '97 we just picked up.
What I've learned is that it's most likely an axle shaft bearing. Does this sound right?
How do I know which rear axle I have - or is there only one type?
The posts I've found for servicing this bearing look to be for WJ's. How does the ZJ differ?
Thanks in advance - I've always used my HDForums buddies to help out on my motorcycle - I trust this group is just as helpful.
