WK1 Troubleshooting / Problems Discussion / Dealer ServiceIf you are having some problems with your Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and need assistance in troubleshooting and diagnosing the problem, this is the proper place to discuss it. Were you treated fairly or poorly at a dealer? Warranty issues? Let us know.
Have you checked the front diff bushing? Just had mine replaced and my thump is gone. Mine was when I accelerated hard and hit the brakes hard or let off the gas quick. Started when I was racing on a road course and steadily got worse to daily driving. $400 to the dealer and I can beat on the Jeep without thinking the drive train is about to fall out.

I need some more info guys....
What has caused that is a number of things, like the large spider pin in the rear diff wallowing out the carrier.
It will cause a pretty decent clunk.
Let me know more specifics, unfortunately, I can't monitor this site every day do to trying to keep up with business.

mine comes and goes, honestly iv never been too worried about it as nothing has failed and its done it since iv had it (37k miles now at 72k), changed the transfer case oil, both diffs, and tranny at 60k. I didn't have any metal shaving come out of anything when the oil drained. couldn't tell you what it is or how to fix it, every car has its bugs this might be one for ours. what year is your jeep? mine is an 07
