Jeep has been making squealing noises for the past couple days. Thought it was tires at first (they do need replacing). But on way home almost felt like I hit a bump, something fell off and now it's bouncing and banging. Pulled in the nearest parking lot. This is all I saw in the street.

Going by the part number (05273464), it's the rear axle damper (item #4 in diagram below). It bolts to the rear differential.

Something may have come loose, rusted out, broken, etc. and now the rear drive shaft / differential is flopping around.
