    I just started to hear this noise in the past few days. I only seem to hear it while in reverse (While idling/rolling) when i give it gas I don't really hear it. Just wondering if this is a normal thing or what the case is.

    *Update*

    I went and pressure washed the whole rear end and everything last night. No squeaking.

    This morning when reversing I can hear it again same pitch and everything so I'm guessing whatever it is hasn't gotten worse.

    Mine does something similar, but only when cold. It has never gotten worse, only does it once first thing in the morning. I figure it's the rear brakes scuffing off whatever corrosion or moisture happened over night. I've decided it's nature of the beast for me

    Sounds good. It just started happening one day out of the blue.

    Rear Upper Control Arm needs replaced. Two of my 3 Liberties were replaced.
    This task takes about 4 hours for the first and 2 hours for second Jeep. I have pneumatic tools which makes a lot easier.
