So I took the Jeep back to the mechanic that worked on my car back in Jan, He threw it on the lift, after a few mins of poking around with a crowbar and hanging off of the rear suspension, my gut instinct was to pull on the lower control arms and try and see if there was some play.. and guess what I heard! THE EFFIN NOISE!. The noise seems as to be coming from where the lower control arm connects to the rear hub/disc brake area. The same rocking/groaning/clunking noise that I hear whenever the suspension flexs while stopping and acclerating from a stand still or driving at 0-40mph.. So to test the theory some more The mechanic sprayed silicone spray. I got a quote on the labor and I drove off.
While driving the noise seemed to get quieter and quieter.. It still makes the noise but its nowhere NEAR as loud as it was yesterday or the day before. I dont know if the temp outside affects anything. I notice that the hotter is outside the more noise I hear in the rear. and the cooler the quieter. I also noticed the rear sway bar eliminators or bushings the rubber is starting to come apart in strands so those will need to be replaced as well.
I'm looking at $75.00-100.00 for labor and the lower controls arm's I found on Rock Auto for around 35.00 a piece before S&H.
