Front End Grinding Noise..I know this has been asked, please look.

2000 Grand Cherokee 4x4 V8. The infamous grinding noise from the front end. Occurs at all speeds. If I'm going around 65 or so and accelerate a little bit it quiets for just a second then comes back. Here is a list of things recently replaced:

1) CV joints on front driveshaft
2) Front Wheel Bearings
3) Carrier on front end
4) Fluids; Tranny pan was dropped to make sure no metal was in it.

I'm lost, and so are 3 different mechanics. Any ideas??? I've searched the forum but no luck.

When faced with this type of problem I use a $9 stethescope. It will pinpoint the problem. That means putting it on a lift with someone inside it and putting it in gear while you listen underneath. It's not my favorite place to be but that little stethescope will find the problem. I am guessing with the carrier (#3) they also did the R&P bearings.

For a few days I have had a problem somewhere in the front end of my 07 wrangler JK. It sounds like there is some sort of scratching. I only hear the sound when I'm driving (not stopping) and I hear it louder and rougher when I am turning.

I'm suspecting it's one of the following-
U joint
Bearing
Transmition
Drive shaft
Steering stabilizer

If you have had a similar problem or know what this problem may be it would be a huge help

Thanks

If your front drive shaft is a double cardon i'd check it. Drive shaft centering yoke.
