    What is that rattling noise, and why is it smoking?
    I just bought a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 6 cylinder with (gulp) 308,000 miles on it at an auction ( I know, I know...). Anyway, as I was driving it home I noticed a rattling sound from the back, it sounds likes something banging in trash can, or like train ...

      I think your exhaust system could have gone loose. Probably the clamps holding it together have become loose or if it is welded they have worn off. Why don't you have them checked? You can tighten the exhaust pipes or if they have been through many miles replace it with a new exhaust system. You can see these kits as http://4wheelonline.com/jeep/Jeep_Exhaust.48283

      I don't know but a front end alignment guy could inspect this. First have the front tires fully inspected and wheels by a tire guy.

      Put tires in back at front and vise versa. In other words rotate the tires and see if this helps or vibration changes.

    I have a grinding sound on front passenger suspension when ever I go over a speed bump. During compression of suspension
    It only comes from passenger side front suspension. I've gone over speed bumps at an angle and it only does it on that side!

      Either a tire defect,sidewall belts broken,bubble in tire,or simply out of balance are the most common causes.

      There are rear upper ball joints - not rear lower. The rear upper ball joints are around $32.00 each for your vehicle; source - RockAuto.com. Try the 'Estmate Cost' feature on the AutoMD website for the relative repair costs including labor.

    Left front wheel shifted forward, causing tire to catch the fenderwell when turned.
    I had been driving through some rough snow and afterwards I noticed the tire catching on something when I would turn all the way. It only does it on the driver's side, front. I've found out that, in comparison to the passenger side as well as other similar Jeeps, ...

      Check the track bar and control arm mounting - probably damaged or loose. Check on-line for the many parts supply sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.

    Changing the control arm bushings
    I need to change the control arm bushings on the front and rear, upper and lower. I have read in a few places that this will require a air hammer chisel, hacksaw or additional tools. I need to know if this is correct for my 1996 Jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 or ...

      Typically, the control arm bushings are pressed into the control arms and must be pressed / driven out. Sometimes, it's easier and less expense simply to replace the entire control arm for the cost of replacing the bushings alone.
      Check on-line for the many parts supply sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, each upper control arm (front) requires two (2) bushings (left and right) at a cost of around $9.00 each, whereas the entire control costs around $21.00 - and most include the bushings already installed. (source: Rock Auto).

      I have only ever seen this on a lifted jeep myself but that is certainly not always the case. The so-called “death wobble” is relatively common among vehicles that use a solid front axle, and the Wrangler is the only light truck currently on sale that falls into this category. The wobble is a harmonic resonance resulting from a loose or worn part in the steering or suspension, such as a tie rod end, and usually set off by hitting a bump at a certain speed. Spend 10 solid minutes under the front end, visually inspecting each one of the steering components for shiny spots on steel, rubber, or polyeurthane, which is typically indicative of suspension components that are moving around when they are not supposed to be. Pay CAREFUL attention to the track bar. The Track Bar is often the culprit in many cases. And, if any of your bolts are even the least bit loose, Death Wobble also can manifest itself and make your life a living hell, so check for looseness everywhere. If you recently changed tires be sure to get an alignment immediately.
