Squeaky Jeep
 
Hey everyone,

So I have 2008 Rubicon Unlimited and when I am driving at low speeds, under 35. There is a squeaking noise on the right side of the car. I have tried to point out the exact location of the squeak, though I do think its the front right. It's not a loud squeak, I can only hear it when the radio is off and windows are down. I also don't think it's the suspension because I don't hear any different noises when I go over bumps and I have also pushed down on the fenders and there is no sound.

Thanks for any advice,

CB

Is it rhythmic, or random? Can you pin it down to anything else like steering input?

It is rhythmic. Steering doesn't effect it.

There are any number of things this could be. My first instinct with these type noises would be bushings and coil spring mounting. Godholio brings a good question. I would also like to know, is it a squeak or a "scrape" Sometimes it can be hard to differentiate the two. If it's a scrape, I would check spring mounting and tie rod ends and track bars first. If it's a squeak, start with bushings.

Brakes pads worn down???

My first thoughts are brakes and wheel bearings.

It's definitely not the brakes. Replaced them last year, plus the doesn't squeak when I brake.

could be a caliper sticking. My XJ made a squeak on the pass. side for a long time. It was sticking and not completely releasing. When I pushed the brake it would stop. Let off the brake it would start again. Had nothing to do with the pads themselves. If that's making sense.

If its rhythmic, it has to be on a rotating part....or is it not constant? I would say wheel bearing or a driveshaft issue.

Just went through this myself. And I didn't find it fast enough. Check your driveshaft centering joint mine was squeaking for about a week turns out within that week it had gouged out the yoke on the driveshaft and I had to buy a whole new one. Check it out or have it checked out before it ends up costing you more than it should.

What is causing the right rear bumpstop squeak when you are driving? Is it in contact with something? It should not be touching anything unless you hit a harsh bump.

yall are both wrong its the rear main coupler to the flux capacitor.
