Yay first post after 4 years
Anyhow - I have a 2000 Jeep Sahara and a new noise had cropped up. Hard to tell exactly what it is at this point - I only hear it when passing by barriers or buildings to reflect the noise.
I Recently had my rear breaks upgraded (again) and my bearings fixed (again) - so I know it doesn't sound like a failing brake pad or a missing brake slider thing. Nor does it sound like a bearings that went south in less than 2 days from install (oops).
What it does sound like is small metal to big metal and it does speed up/ slow down as the jeep does.
I don't think the control arms would be constant with rotation speeds of the tire and that noise would be more a clicking when going over stuff right?
Perhaps the brakes need to be tightened down?
