My RE kit is really quite loud. I have a short arm kit but I know the long arm kits have johnny joints as well so spill it. and yes! I grease my joints!

do you play in the water a lot?...That will cause some noise no matter how much grease you use.

Mines been on the street for 2 days, only noise is the exhaust that rattles against the rear shock ever so often.

Good call - I haven't done any water crossings yet. I grease these suckers about every 2 weeks and the Johnny joints just squeak. I just turn up the stereo now. no big deal - great stereo! :wink:

I have the 4.5 and it squeaks like an old truck.As I was looking at your posts it seems those of you with the 3.5 don't have any problems.I wanted the 3.5,but RE was out for two weeks so I got talked into the 4.5
I may still go and get 3.5 springs.

I don't think that it's the springs - mostly my noise is from the Johnny joints in the control arms

Is there anything I can do to get rid of all this noise? It's driving me crazy! :mad:
ON another subject,I get a pulsating like vibe at around 43mph.Is this going to go away when I get my TW CV tomorrow or is there something else I need to do?

Someone on the JU Wrangler [non Rubi Forum] suggested replacing the bolts that hold the control arms with different ones and another person concurred with that.

Unfortunatley, I have not been able to re-find that link to get the type of bolt they suggested

The CV DS will help with that vibe.

Did you grease all the CA after you installed them?

The squeaks,could they be the springs agianst the bottom base they sit on?I mean at the tops you have a little rubber piece,but nothing on the bottom.Why would you have the rubber pieces on top ,but nothing on the bottom?It seems to me that they could move just a fraction and be causing the noise.

ANy feed back is always appreciated.

P.S. A little off topic,but my rear end is off center while I await the rear adj. track bar.Could this be binding things up and causing the vibes and possibly some of the noise?
