Crossposting since the threads are in different sub forums so easy to miss...
This is also a good point to check. I remember this happened on one of my other SRTs previously as well. Have jacked this one up yet but will definitely be doing this by next weekend.

The caliper/wheel weight "click" will be a constant click, not one that's turn sensitive like the wheel bearing

What is the build date for your Jeep? I'm wondering if this is a problem now that will be coming up for others.

Thx again!
Build date on mine is 2-18

Well....looks like I had the head of a nail in my tire as I noticed it when I took it off to clean the calipers.

Looks like the problem is solved. Had it patched and fixed and no more noise. Still, going to keep an eye on that wheel bearing. None of mine were moving with any play when I checked each one.
