Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Intermittent High Speed Wobble around 50 mph

The vehicle does not do this everytime around 50mph. Sometimes it is minimal, other times I must come to a complete stop to stop the vehicle from shuttering. May do it while coming up to a speed or slowing, but around 45-50mph. I have tried different tires on the front, and replaced the track bar. Still does not help.

    I checked the ball joints, tie rod ends and sway bar and everything is tight. Any other suggestions?

    Did you ever find out what was wrong? I have a 2007 jeep commander that does the exact same thing.

Have an alignment place check your idler arms & steering links, and tie rods for play, as well as the rest of the front end. that's a dangerous thing to fool around with.

On 98 caravan 2.4 it starts to wobble at 40up to 50 mph mostly when accelerating when speed reached smoths also smooths out after 50 mph alll new including valves. could bad wires cause this?

How old are the good tires? These speeds usually mean belt or balance problem with tires...If new tires, they need to be re-checked for balance...and not out of round...also check for bent wheel...due to chuckhole? Sometimes a bent steel wheel can be hammered straight...hope this helps.

What causes slight vibration?

sounds too much like a wheel imbalance, check all the wheel nuts are tight too (I know it sounds stupid but it has happened to me) some off-road tyres have a speed limit set to around 50mph.

2004 Chevy Trailbalzer LT front end wobbles at 55-65 MPH. It will sometimes smooth out at 70 but is intermittent from time to time

Do this first.. drive this vehicle very slowly on a smooth straigh road. If the wobble is noticed you have a broken steel belt in your tire that fluxuates at different speeds causing this to happen
