Chirping in my Front End
Dear Hive Mind,
I have an 06 WK Laredo, with 155K miles. I replaced a seized caliper on the front driver's side along with the rotor, pads and the hub bearing assembly. I also replaced the rotor, pads, caliper, and hub bearing assembly on the passenger side. I ran out of daylight before I could get to the differential fluid change.
It drives MUCH better now, not pulling to the side and no scraping from caliper, and also accelerates and of course brakes much better.
However, now I get a chirping / squealing sound in the driver's side, but only when turning right, above 10mph or when turning very sharp.
Due to the noise of the sticking caliper scraping / pads squealing I can't tell if the sound was there before. I will say that hubs were badly rusted to the knuckle, and the driver side hub was scraping when i turned it by hand.
Could the extra heat / resistance plus all the rust have damged the CV joint in the axle?
