2004 Jeep Liberty shaking when breaking at high speed

I can not drive in a hurry because when I broke, my Jeep Liberty will shake the steering wheel. I cnaged 4 new tires, changed lower balljoints. I have to drive slowly like a lady. What is the cause for it to shake? I changed all brake pads and the problem is still there. Is there any places I missed? I will go under the car when the weather is warmup.

    I jacked the right side up and tried to remove the tire, it's rock solid. I jacked the left side and tried to move the tire, it's rock solid. I will check the front rotors when the weather is warm. Since I bought it, I never change the rotors. I changed the brake pads all 4 but did not inspect the rotors. It has 117,000 miles.

Some things you can check. 1 jack up one side at a time. Grasp the tire on each side and try to move the tire, if you can move it you have a bad inner tie rod on that side. You can also grasp the tire at the top and bottom and try to move it that way as well, this will tell you if you have bad ball joints. I suspect a bad inner tie rod here as you have replaced everything else. If you check both front tires and nothing is loose your problem lies in your front brake rotors. Hope this gives you some help and thank you for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

    Yep. Time for some new rotors. Also when you replace your rotors, its always a good idea to replace your pads at the same time. Good luck to you and thanks for using fixya!

Hurt front end


not trying to be rude but do be sure the wheel is tight. a build up of corrosion on the wheel or hub could cause the wheel not to set n lug studs correctly. that would cause a knock noise and will shake the wheel

Violent shake


My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches) on my 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you.
