Hey i was wondering if any one could help my with a problem i have, or if anyone has experienced a similar problem.

Recently my Sj413 has started making a strange grinding/whining noise when i hit a small bump or cats eye, and it goes away randomly after a couple of minutes, or when i come to a complete stop. The noise seems to be coming from somewhere near the front drivers side wheel, which i recently had the wheel bearing replaced on. So i know it cant be the wheel bearing, i was wondering if it could be something to do with the manual locking hub, as it seems a bit seized up. Ive also been told it could be the leaf springs making the noise, strangely enough.

The noise was much louder a week ago, it was much more of a grinding noise and now its more high pitched and whiney. coasting in neutral it still does the same noise if a bump sets it off, and also speed dosnt really effect the way it makes the sound, it will sound the same right until its almost at a halt, then it will stop all together.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

Having the same problem.

Metal scraping noise when driving.  About half of the rotation sounds like scraping, the other half does not.

I was thinking it was the bearings?  Warped rotor?

Any help is appreciated!
