I hear a hissing sound coming from back left tire, no one seems to know what it is. It is not the tire, any ideas?

your one is full time 4x4 could be the shocks?


having full time 4x4 make a difference bout shocks... It could have something to do with your gas tank... the fill tubes go from that side down over the tire into the tank. Maybe your gas cap isn't sealing properly? I dunno if you have a zj, wj or wk but if you have a wj (99-04) there is a fuel filter behind the frame rail in that corner that could maybe make noise ?


when is the hissing happening

ha i ment 4x4 WONT make a difference.. lol


it could be many. i agree with the shocks. it could be the vent for your gas take but i doubt you can hear it. check for air in your brake lines.

Most likely a vaccum leak
