    Front pinion seal

    Mine turned out to be the front pinion seal. I replaced it with a Mopar brand replacement and it's totally quiet now. The squeal was where the seal contacts the flange. Hope it helps.

    Turns out my assumption was correct. I replaced the front pinion seal and the issue is gone. Back to quiet... at least for a while.

    I threw the JK up on stands last night to investigate further since the noise is getting worse, or at least more consistent. I was able to reproduce it for the first time with the weight off of the...

    Interesting. I have after market axle shafts, so the guides are gone. Good luck if you keep searching. I'll reply if I find anything out; diagnosis scheduled for later this week.

    Did you ever figure this out? I have exactly the same issue.

    Here's my post with links to the same noise.

    I did a full brake job on the front and the sound still exists. Pads are almost new, everything is greased, new clips, new boots on the pins, but the noise is still there after everything warms up. ...

    I slowed the video down and the funny thing is that it's close to the wheel speed, but not exactly. I fully cleaned and lubed the entire brake system and swapped new clips and pin boots. So far,...

    I'm actually in the market for wireless mechanic's ears. That'd make this whole issue easy to find.

    That's my typical approach and I just re-greased everything this evening. I'm still not convinced it's the brakes, though. We'll find out in the morning.

    Nope - ran out of caliper grease. I need to do that and re-apply anti seize to the clips

    I did take the pads out of both sides of calipers, removed and cleaned the clips, pads, pistons, and brackets. they looked okay, but it can't hurt to swap in new clips. That's the cheapest thing I...
  13. Another day, another squeal. I need help diagnosing this front axle noise.

    This just started a week ago and I need help identifying what's making this noise (video link 1). It's coming from the front and I can reproduce it with the drive shaft removed, so it's between the...

    I've got the JSpec lift so I think we're running the exact same track bar. That's fantastic news - I'd hate to have to go all in only to find it's an issue at full stuff.
  15. Big Bore XD2 clearance with JKS Track bar?

    I'm considering upgrading to a PSC Big Bore XD2 steering box, but it seems they have clearance issues with some after market track bars. I know Synergy's product fits, but I'd like to avoid spending...

    I'm trying to do some steering mockup without having parts in hand yet. Can anyone with either a PSC or Redneck Ram shoot me a measurement from the center of the heims at full extension? I've got...

    I run the Signature sliders. They're absolutely fantastic and as stout as a sliders can be. They can support the full weight of the vehicle without issue. I can't speak for the destroyers, but...
  20. Track bar relocation with hydro assist tabs?

    Is anyone aware of a manufacturer who offers a bolt on track bar relocation bracket with ram assist tabs already welded on? I was looking at PSC's bolt on cylinder assist bracket but it looks like...

    A few reasons, really. I'm slowly building my rig to (properly) support 37s. I still have the option to go entirely 1350s, but for now I want to keep the short circuit at the drive shaft. It costs...

    It's a hybrid. 1310s at the H-yoke and a 1350 at the pinion flange.

    Unfortunately that's unlikely in my case. My drive shaft was custom built with 1310s at the t-case and 1350 at the pinion. It'll be hard to fine anyone with that setup.
  25. Please help me - what's causing my drive shaft to make this noise shifting out of 4lo

    Good news is that after many days of driving, my drive shaft is silent! I'm declaring victory over that battle, but I haven't won the war. My temporary fix is working fine, but I still want a...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
