I just remembered that my old WJ was also making strange noise from the front. I drove it for a few days like this - cheked almost everthing. ALMOST everything, except the wheel lugs! Driver side wheel lugs were a bit loose and thats were the noise was coming!

Got under the old girl again today to triple (more like 4348759847) check everything.

Ended up pushing in and out on the drivers side CV axle and it actually had some play and a slight click on the inside joint. It's literally about the only part that isn't replaced on the front of mine. I did the same on the one I replaced on the passenger side and it didn't move or have any kind of noise. REALLY hoping it is the culprit because I'm sick of worrying about it!

I'm gonna order a replacement and hopefully have it swapped out within the next week or so. I'll get back with the results ASAP!

Definitely not what I would expect it to be since there isn't anything wrong with the boots and she doesn't get thrashed on. So, the OP may have been onto something with wanting to replace the driver side axle.

I got the drivers side axle and wheel bearing done yesterday. I also ended up doing the diff bushings because the top one was shot! That said, I do believe my noise is gone. I think that it was caused by the axle based on the noise it was making, but I also wonder if it had to do with that upper diff bushing. Drive shaft checked out. Wheel bearing was fine, just went ahead and changed it since I previously did the other side.

Hopefully the OP has figured his noise out! If not, hope this helps.

I realize I said this to the OP & not you, but, that should almost always be the first thing that's checked when there's front end noise involved - particularly if you know or suspect it hasn't been replaced before.

Anyway, glad you got it all sorted out @Colt.

I had actually checked them maybe 3-4 months ago, so it wasn't even on my mind! I just happened to push up on the diff and felt it move. I have literally replaced everything on the front of mine now, so I guess that means I should have peace of mind???

Yes, you most definitely should.....less to worry about down the road too.
