    Hey Y’all, I have a 2012 jeep patriot latitude 2wd. I have this clunking noise coming from the driver side tire area and I cannot figure out what it is at all. It is usually when i go over bumps, especially the littlest ones. I did the wobble test while i had it jacked up, grabbing the wheel...

    Hey guys so I am new to this and just got my first keep two days ago, 2015 Patriot. I have been doing research about lift kits and wanted something but not to aggressive and something were I wouldn’t have to change much else. Anyone have any experience with Daystars 1.5” lift kit? I’m planning...

    Hi all, Thought I'd ask you lot about an issue I'm currently having with our Patriot. So I've replaced the lower suspension arms on the front... But noticed that one side the wheel sticks out further and has a lot more camber than before. The track rod end needed a lot of adjustment this side...

    Hello, friends. My 2009 Patriot is hurting. I have a cracked subframe and it needs immediate attention. Significant rust involved, not 100% certain if that caused the crack, but for what it's worth. The body shop folks are saying $1,000-$1,500 for repairs, with the possible high end of that...

    I have a 2008 Patriot with the FDII and recently put on brand new struts on all 4 sides but the rear is sagging heavily. What could it be that is doing this? I took it to moab and did Klondike Bluffs with no issue but I'm worried that something is broken. Anyone have any idea what is wrong here?

    Hey all, I've been looking for alternatives for the STU lift kit, as their site page seems to be down, and I'm not sure where else to get them. I came across these adjustable height coilovers by Maxpeeding Rods, but the description is pretty lame. Not sure if they are intended to lower or lift...

    Hi Everyone, I thought I'd post something to the forum regarding a lot of repairs I'm going to have done to my 2010 Patriot North Edition, with FD1. First a bit of history, I actually joined the forum a long time ago but I didn't manage to visit/post, the kids were younger back then and things...

    When accelerating my 2007 Patriot Limited FWD will pull to the left. I have to turn the wheel to about 1 o'clock to offset the torque steering. When off the accelerator the vehicle drives straight. The History: I have new-ish tires with less than 10k on them. Even wear and properly inflated...

    I'm trying to change the toe link on my 2008 Jeep Patriot and I cannot figure out how to get the bolt that's fastened to the trailing arm to release. I've put a ton of torque on it with a breaker bar, impact, everything I can think of, and nothing moves. Is there a trick to it?

    Grabbed the SERVICE manuals for my Jeep from some shady manual site. It said they were for 2008-2016 but are labelled 2014. Figured I'd share, here's a download link: https ://1drv.ms/u/s!AhRkd6_gUNEigZdHOIYSlL0X8VeyUg :smile2:

    My Jeep has for some time squeak while braking. It's not very loud, but i did get new brake pads about 6 months ago and probably have less than 2,000 miles on them. They said the pads were fine but i still am wondering what it squeaks. It is usually when i'm coming to a stop from under 25mpn...

    Hi, My rear suspension is creaking and chirping... Almost like I hear the springs compress and depress.. This happens when driving, most noticable when going slow. When i stopped my jeep, I went to the back and pushed down on the rear bumper and could hear the creaking of the back end being...

    Hey guys this is my first post and I am the proud owner of a 2010 patriot sport. This is my first car and i have already tested out the 4x4 down in Sycamore Creek, AZ on some light trails and sand. Looking for some budget ways to soup up my patriot and make it a little more off road ready...

    I am interested in lifting my Patriot, but I find the rro lift kit a bit costly for the amount of lift you get. I found a body lift that is supposed to fit a patriot and would be able to lift it 4 inches for about 60 dollars. I asume this will be at the cost of ride comfort which does not...
