Rear brake click 02 Renegade

So, I just started noticing a clicking sound coming from the rear of my jeep. This only happens at lower speeds when I'm not hitting the brake, as soon as I apply the brake the clicking stops. Not sure what could be causing this, obviously something in the braking system but everything I've seen is that people have clicking noises when applying the brake.

Pull the rear drums off and have a look,bet something will fall out when you pull at least one drum off.Being a '02 you don't have rear disc brakes.

Ah, that'd make sense, I'm taking her in for an oil change pretty soon, I'll have them check it then.

Also check the CV joint at the transfer case end of the front driveshaft.

That CV sits right under the driver's seat and the sound can appear to come from the rear. Climb under there and look at the boot in the CV joint; if it's torn or missing or there's grease splattered around it you'll need to replace it. DO NOT let a shop tell you the entire driveshaft has to be replaced. You can get the CV joint separately for just $55 from It is a common repair on Libertys.

Here's how to replace it. The thread was started a while back so some of the info is outdated at the beginning of the thread. Read through to the end to get a feel for current pricing and sourcing.
