Replace steering stabilizer and rotate tires every three thousand miles. Rotation is actually the most important. Took me two sets of tires, before they were worn out, to realize the problem.

If your steering box is in the same place mine is, the adjustment is hidden under the radiator shroud.Generally this will remove a bit of steering play but it has to be done carefully to avoid binding.
What you really need to do is to check the entire front end for any play. Remember that "acceptable" play in one component when added to "acceptable" play in several other components = unacceptable overall play.All bushings, joints etc must be checked. Shocks need to be in good condition as well. If everything is in good condition, find a good alignment shop and ask them if it's possible to add a few degrees of positive caster to your present settings. If you have adjustment for this it will help to keep it going straight at speed. (may make turns a bit harder but with p/s it should not be noticed.
good luck

Haha the death wobble replace the steering dampner or shock on the lower tortion bar of the suspension with an heavy duty upgraded one. Not a difficult repair check the tortion bar bushing for play. But the death wobble is caused by the steering shock. Seen it a lot fixes it every time. Hope the info helps rate it please.

Check the front stabilizer bar and the bushings on it. It is located under the radiator with arms that bend back to each front tire.

SOURCE: jeep front end shakes badly

Bent rods....Okay...first thing...did you hit anything or or run over anything? Second, did you go off-roading....

It could be a few things....some easy and some expensive...but need to know what you have done with the Jeep first.

2009 Honda CR-V high road noise

This could be multiple issues. Condition of tires, shocks (struts), tire pressure, tire balance, alignment, and some other minor issues.
How is the ride? If it is good and takes bumps well, it is probably not shocks/struts. Are you getting any vibration through the steering? This points to tires. Is it noisier during a powered turn? That could be CV joints.
I could consider taking it somewhere that would check things out and give you a free quote towards repairs necessary. That will help you rule out a considerable amount of potentials.

Iv got a jeep Cherokee 2009kk and when I'm doing 20-30 miles an hour it judders can you help thanks Leslie.

well that means vibration, and we will never know the source of that here in net bunnyland.
for example, it can be over 100 things.
top things, (all useless in the real world are)
1: engine shaking, misfire, needed a tune up.
2: tires out of balance, (weights fell off common) get them balanced?
3: suspension bounce, shocks bad, or struts.
4: wheel lug bolts falling off, loose, danger to extreme.
5: wheel bearing failure, same.
6: brake failure,
why not ask the living to inspect car and live to next day.

Check your lower and upper control arm ball joints as well as the tie rod ends. Also make sure your wheel lugs are tight. Also make sure front hubs are in the free position when operating on the street. If the Jeep has a straight axel, check the king pin bushings at the steering knuckles.

I have been told that I need to change the struts and shocks. No visible sign of leaking. Alignment seems fine and drives smooth. Am I missing something?

Parts on cars do not last forever and replacing struts and shocks usually are recommended about every 80,000 miles.They have the job of keeping the tires in contact with the road,and bad shocks can be a safety issue like poor braking performance.

Cupping tires Will I need shocks or just new tires?

A little more information would be good. However, start with the basics and work your way in as far as you need:
  • If you have not been rotating tires about every 6000 miles you can get cupping
  • If your current tires are cupped they have to be replaced to rid your self of any potential symptoms
  • The alignment should be checked if you have been rotating
  • When the alignment is done, the struts should be checked for leaks and/or wear

Front-end makes a low rattle noise when hitting rough spots

I have experienced the same rattle on a 2002 Bravada since about 50,000 miles. I have had tie rods replaced. Later, I had tires rotated at a tire/maintenance shop and they showed me a slight amount of movement in the ball joints. They wanted to change them. I took it to a dealership. They checked the ball joints and said some play is normal but didn't recommend changing them. I am wondering if the noise is in the struts. It occurs on a slightly rough roads and even backing out of a driveway when the shocks/struts are working rapidly.
