Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

97 Jeep grand cherokee with stiff steering at 9:00 and 3:00...

I just went to look at a used 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 for my son. The steering was a little stiff both ways until you hit the 9:00 and 3:00 points, then freed up.
Is this something that should have us walking away, or is this possibly an easy fix?

Check and see if the Power Steering Pump is Low on Fluid. If not Low, you could have a Leak in the Pump or Lines and will need to be Replaced. Also Make sure that the Belt is good and Tight. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Are any of the parts on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee interchangeable with a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee? rear axle,wheels, power-steering, hood hyrdraulics?


A few parts should be interchangeable. Most of them will not be however since the Grand Cherokee underwent a complete re-design for 1999. Some engines and transmissions will switch out. The rear axle in the 97 was commonly a Dana/Spicer 35. This was replaced with a larger rear differential in 1999 for increased towing capacity. The wheels should interchange ok, power steering system was pretty much the same and as long as the hydraulics (supports) on the hood are the same length they should work

1997 Jeep grand Cherokee limited 5.2l v8....how to fix very stiff steering. I have changed the power steering pump already an it is still hard to turn my wheels


sound like lack of lubrication at the steering joints, your ball joints need greasing and make sure you bleed power steering system, check power steering fluid level.if low more like power steering system full of air need bleeding.

If that's a 4 wheel drive make sure the front gear ratio matches the rear ratio or you'll destroy the gears everytime. I had the same problem with my '97 Grand Cherokee.

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model


The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
