Wj Rear side wheel well rubbing/binding sound when making right & left turns.

Well when making a right or a left turn I hear rubbing coming from the rear side wheel well like tires are pulling or rubbing. Is it the brakes pad rotor issue or the parking brake rubbing to the discs. Or should I check for any play in the u-joint.

Did some research and found that few GC owners had the TC fluid changed and it went away, any specific/recommended TC fluid. I recently got rare diff fluid changed (75W-140 synthetic) with the mopar FM.

Thoughts................any?

I had a binding issue with my transfer case because of the wrong fluid being in it, but that was only when 4WD would engage that I would experience it. If you are going to change it, you have to use the dealer spec fluid for the TC. I believe I remember alfaitalia saying that you non-US WJ owners had to start using something else because the dealers stopped carrying the right fluid, but its worth a look before giving up on the dealer fluid. You will know that it is the right fluid because it says NV247 right on the bottle.

The fact that you say this only happens when turning makes me think that whoever did your diff fluid change may have either not used any or used too much of the FM you gave them.

Well I gave him fluids myself. 2 bottles of 75w-140 and a 4oz bottle of FM. And everything was done in front of me. Now there might be a possibility was wrong fluid in TC as it got repaired by previous owner before I bought it. Nevertheless, I m planning to get the TC fluid change next week and will update the status. Thanks

Any more thoughts on the TC creating all this problem.

Many thanks

The amount of FM required will change based on "wear & tear". Figure 8's and tight circles in a parking lot are your friend.

well, now after every fluid changed, I m getting a vibration between 50-60 miles then it becomes smooth after crossing 60 and comes again at at 80. Mechanic told me that the front shaft is faulty, any thoughts? I need to go for the used shaft in junkie as hard to find from dealer in this part of the world.
