Rumble strip noise at decel
Hello all, as topic states I am getting a rumble strip noise at decel and bad vibration when coming to a stop in my 2007 Jeep liberty limited (stock). I took it to a shop near my work and they test drove it and said bad torque converter but they never even put it on a lift, so I asked how they knew and they explained there was a bulletin for it. They hand me a bulletin and I read it and it says it for the diesel model so I became suspicious especially when they wanted $1200 to fix it. I drove it home and Saturday took it to a local mechanic that I have used before, he said he wasn't positive where it was coming from after he put it on the rack. All my boots looked good no oil or grease leaks anywhere so he suggested I take it to a Jeep store. After doing some research I see the rear U joint can cause this so I crawled under my Jeep and since my son has my jack stands I could not get it off the ground safely I did a visual inspection, I did see one of the rubber seals on the rear u joint is away from its original position, but I could not feel any slop. Could that be enough to make the U joint bad?
