Obviously you have some dangerous brake problems and shouldn't be driving it. With that said, besides putting everyone else in danger, as well as yourself, your heating up parts that become brittle when heated, and could snap off, like a wheel. You more than likely have warped rotors, seized calipers, defective flex hoses, just for starters. Park it until you can get it checked, please!

Seems like you have a bad or stuck piston on your caliper and that is cause your car to pull and also lock up the tire.

When i use the brakes over 50 mph the front shakes. between 40 and 50 mph theres a little shaking, below 40mph its brakes smooths


A slight shimmy under braking is usually the result of a brake rotor that is not true. Sounds like you may have a warpped brake rotor...I would check that, and your front suspension componets for wear.... I hope this helps.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V-8 shakes something awful sometimes when I brake at speeds of 50mph+. It then starts to wobble and doesn`t brake good. What is causing this to happen and how do I fix it?...


UNLESS there is a major front end issue the most common cause of the vibration is the rotors being out of round. this is easily correct by having a brake shop resurface the rotors. also the vibration could be coming from the rear as well. the way to determine if it rear or front is the next time you brake somewhere that it usually has the vibration try applying only the parking brake instead of the brake pedal. NOTE....when making this check be sure to hold the parking brake release button to prevent lock up of the brakes. the parking brake only works the rear brakes. this will determine where it is coming from. the back brakes will have either brake drums or either brake rotors. same philosophy but different operating mechanics. either way it can all be corrected by resurfacing the rotors and/or drums

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. There is a "violent" vibration that occurs only when you are going 40-60 MPH and you hit a bump or pot hole on the highway. The front end begins to...


Vibration from about 40-60 mph is usually attributed to wheel balancing, but the onset when you hit a bump seems to indicate play in the steering linkages (tie rods etc) or suspension members and stabiliser bar rubbers but you had that all checked out, that brings us back to the wheel balancing.

My front wheel staggers when at speeds 40 to 50 mph.But around the speeds of 60 mph it stops. I have tried new tires but no luck.This 97 jeep cheroke is a head-ache


Get the alignment done on your vehicle and make sure all the tires are properly balanced. Look for play in the sway bar and also have the wheel bearings checked out.

Steering and front end shake bad when hit brakes over 50 mph


Check your front brake discs (rotors) - they may be warped. Check front brake calipers - are they working? Check condition of tyres. Answer is more likely to be the rotors. Your symptoms are dangerous.
