just bought this on friday, grand cherokee lareado freedom edition.
63,000 miles for $10,000. any good message boards out there?
whanna find out what the freedom edition actually is,
and wanna get some toys for it.

it has a few squeeks that I want to find out wat they are caused from,
when I go over like speed bumps and large cracks in the road.
also a whine from the throttle I think, it goes away when I release the gas pedal.

I have found JeepForum to be the best one for that WJ truck. 4.0 or 4.7 ?

could be the control arm bushings...is it from the front or the back? Left or right side? Not discernable?

I want to say its from the front but both ends.

Sometimes the rubber bushing can get old and dried out...they can make noise (a sharp or hard squeek is an accurate way to describe it). Check the condition, see if someone can rock the jeep hard for you and produce a low-grade version of the sound.
