I believe what you are seeing is actually a "jounce" bumper. When the suspension "bottoms out" it hits the jounce bumper. This is what the factory calls this part believe it or not. If you look close you'll see the lower part is rubber, and the upper part is metal with maybe a spiral grooves it it.

Why is my 95 jeep cherokee feel like the rear end is floating? I have alredy checked the rear end axle barrings that is not the problem.


Please check the shock mounting hardware. Are the shocks in good shape? Additionally, make sure the trailing arms are not cracked.

Where r the front shocks located in relation to the coil springs on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo?


They are probably inside the coil springs. IF so then you can remove them through the bottom of the spring mount.

Frontend bottoms out


Mike, extend the travel in the front springs might help but I'd say you may have to replace the front springs. If she has bottomed out alot, also check the bump stops for damage.

There is a swaying in thr rear end of my 99 jeep grand cherokee Laredo


Unlike other Cherokees, you have coil springs in the rear, not flat springs.
Coils tend to react more to side loads and will therefore sway on turns more than a flat spring will. You need to look at the attachment arm bushings and mounts to make sure nothing is worn or loose.
Its very likely that the only thing wrong is that your shock absorbers are worn out. From the outside even ones that have failed don't look bad as the failure is internal.
When buying shocks, get the best ones you can afford. they last longer and control movement better. The more expensive ones tend to have larger pistons and better internal valving that translates into better control and longer life. If you carry heavy loads, I'd consider getting "coil over" shocks that also offer a bit more load carrying capacity.

Broken front coil spring


There were a lot of differences between a 98 TJ (Wrangler) and a 95 ZJ (Grand Cherokee). The grand cherokee is much heavier. Now might be the time for those "Off Road" upgrades you've been waiting on. And it is a good excuse.
Have a nice day!

Replacing front shocks


Jack up the front end and place on jack stands. Place jack stands on the frame behind the front wheels. Ensure stands are not in a place where they will slip and make sure vehicle is on an even surface as you do not want the vehicle to fall off of the stands, especially while you are under it. Remove tires once vehicle has been placed on the stands. Remove the top and bottom bolts from the long tubular shock. Then remove the bolts holding the coil shocks on. Because when doing this as there may be tension in the coil springs still. Replace the shocks and reinstall the bolts. This job is fairly simple but can be intimidating if you have never done it before. You will be amazed at how easy it actually is once you have done it. Just be sure to remember how everything came apart and you will be able to get everything back together just fine. You can use the jack to adjust the axle up or down to make getting the shocks out easier.

Shocks


Take a good look at the springs. They are probably rubbing/hitting. I had that happen on my 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Try to manipulate them into place with a prybar or turn them. Some times if accessories are mounted in the engine compartment the screws can stick through the metal and hit the spring also.
