Thanks for the info. Needed to know if your model the Grand Cherokee Laredo or the Limited
Were you able to pull the codes yet?
For the clicking I am trying to see if it is coming from the engine, transmission or suspension.
So, sitting with the car at idle, when you race the engine there is no clicking. This is the same in park or neutral. Is this correct?
Please take off driving and at about 10mph put the car in neutral and race the engine. Does this make the clicking louder or does it stop?
Put the car in reverse. Does it do it while in reverse?
How long ago did this start. Have you hit anything or made any adjustments on anything?
If you feel it is coming from the front end, jack the front up and spin one tire in the direction as if the car was moving forward then the other. Do you hear the sound?
Look at the cover plate where the flywheel meets the engine. Is it dented
If you only hear the noise when the vehicle is moving it sounds like something is hitting or rubbing something.
With the front end up, look at all the items under there near the tires, drive shafts etc that move and see if anything is stuck or hitting anything that moves when the car is moving.
As for the struts. You can use the tool check out at AZ or OR and change the shocks yourself. Just be extremely careful. Strut springs are under a lot of pressure so you need to make sure you have the springs compressed before taking off the top nut.
We can go more into that once we figure out the clicking noise.
Let me know the answers to the above questions and we can take it from there.
