SOURCE: Front end and rear end differential

The 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee was prone to bad diff bearings because they changed the plant where they were made. The new plant used inferior materials. The only way to fix it is to replace and set the diff clearences.

Since you aready paid $400, go back to ;the shop and get your $'S worth!! Unless someone can prove that the axle bgs were bad, you shoulld ask why pinion & side gears were not diagonsed!!! (dosen't anyone test drive stuff after they "fix" something anymore??? Dosen't anyone give a damn???
If you can't get anywhere with this, find a junkyard unit and install it yourself. It isn't that hard. Just be sure that new lone has the same mount points and gear ratio matches ratio lof front axle.(count gear teeth if you must)

SOURCE: Jeep Wrangler 1998 straight drive has difficult

if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem

Clunking in rear end of 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L


chances are it's either in the transfer case or differential. Since it's easy to remove the rear cover on the differential, I' d look there first. If you remove the driveshaft and get both rear wheels off the ground you can turn the assembly and inspect the gears. If it's not in the gears, then you know where to look....And, check those u joints too!

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee has leeking rear axle seals, having them replaced this week hopefully.. Should I continue to drive it or not?


Depends on how low the fluid level in the differential is. Likely the brakes are contaminated with gear lube as much as they are going to be so aside from being careful stopping, you should not have a problem, providing the distance driven isn't too far and the diff is full..

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming


check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced
