Since you aready paid $400, go back to ;the shop and get your $'S worth!! Unless someone can prove that the axle bgs were bad, you shoulld ask why pinion & side gears were not diagonsed!!! (dosen't anyone test drive stuff after they "fix" something anymore??? Dosen't anyone give a damn???
If you can't get anywhere with this, find a junkyard unit and install it yourself. It isn't that hard. Just be sure that new lone has the same mount points and gear ratio matches ratio lof front axle.(count gear teeth if you must)

1999 jeep grand cherikee 4 wheel drive not working


You need to be more specific. To start, which 4 wheel drive system your jeep has? (Select Trac, Quadra Trac II or Quadra Drive)
Then: does it never work, or only in 4-Lo?

In sharp turns, right or left, front end shinmies/shakes. Is this a trnsfer case problem..? Have a 2000 Grand Cherokee with Quadra-Trac


I don't remember what the cut-off year was when Jeep changed from standard universal joints to C/V joints but your problem sounds a lot like a bad end joint on a front axle shaft. "U" joints are "X" type...CV's have a rubber boot covering them. If the boot is torn that also could cause the CV to fail but unless they are really bad generally they get real noisy first before they get to the point of binding.
Only way your transfer case could be doing that is if you have different size tires in the front or rear.
Usually a bad transfer case will make the whole vehicle shudder, even going straight.
If you have X type joints, don't go by how they look... you need to remove them to see if they are binding.

Front end and rear end differential


The 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee was prone to bad diff bearings because they changed the plant where they were made. The new plant used inferior materials. The only way to fix it is to replace and set the diff clearences.

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming


check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced
