Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
I need to replace the shocks and struts on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee. I need to know what to order. Do I need to put struts on the front and shocks on the back only?
Struts on the front contain shock absorbers as well as the pivot to turn the wheels where as on the rear they are just shock absorbers The replacement part is called an insert
so strut inserts on the front and shocks on the rear
the wheel alignment may be altered during the replacement process so it is suggested to have it done in suspension specialist shop

Drive the car in a parking lot and make left and right hand turns.
If the noise goes away on either turn then the problem is a front hub bearing.
If the noise is still there, it could be possible front differential bearings.

According to the replacement parts guide, they are struts and I checked for all wheel drive and 2 wheel drive and all are showing struts.
