Q: The rear end roars the faster i go in my 1996 Jeep Cherokee.

asked by on

It isnt too bad when driving around 20-30 mph. But when increasing speed it gets very noticeable. It's really loud on I-75 when getting up to 75 miles per hour. And it sorta has a shake to it that will die out once around 70-80. But the noise stays. I was thinking the u-joint my be why it's shaking so I'll be having that replaced any way because I all ready baught it and the shaft did have some play too it. But i was thinking just to change the rear wheel bearings my self and have a mechanic change my pinion Bearing for me. My tires dont have much play to them. When i jack the back of the car and spun the wheels the did spin for a little freely, but did sound ah little gritty, Not alot. when i disconnected the rear shaft from the rear end and turned the yoke it had a slide grinned to it. Anyway when speeding it like ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmm until I slow down to like 20mph. Could it possibly even be rotors ?? Its not crazy noticeable at low speeds. Sorry for confusion. Really want to fix it
