Carrier Bearings or Rear Wheel Bearings?
The WJ's started making some loud thumping noises when slowing down and traveling at parking lot speeds. It kinda sounds like when you'd put a baseball card in the spokes of a bicycle tire. The noise isn't nearly as loud when accelerating or driving at normal speed (~45mph). I drained and replaced the fluid in the rear diff over the weekend. I filtered the old gear oil as it drained and didn't fine anything abnormal. Inside the diff everything appeared ok, so I'm leaning towards wheel bearings. I know ifs difficult to diagnose over the internet, but do you think I'm on the right track?
