Question about 2001 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

2002 Jeep Wrangler shakes above 50-55 mph on smooth surface but shakes out of control on road that has a good amount of bumps, one right after another. I was told several different things, what's the problem and would I be able to fix it myself after getting parts or would a mechanic have to do the job?

Sounds like your wheels need to be balanced or the front end has something worn out like stabalizer links

You make no mention that you have had a fault code scan run, do that first.

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.

When you drive 45 mph and above the front end shakes real bad


very good chance you will need tie rod ends, is there squeaking during turns? (ball joints) hit a bump at higher speeds and the car sways left and right? any other symptoms?

I have 2002 jeep wrangler at speeds between 50 nad 55 mph I get a vibration in the the front steering. I changed the steering damper and had the tires rotaded and balanced and i still have the problem.


have the mounts checked on the control arms, alot of times the can bend slightly due to a "curb" check. Call a local 4X4 shop and tell them you are experiencing the "death shake" they should know what you are talking about. That was the problem on my 02 TJ, i had replaced everything when i noticed that the angle on the control arm looked a little off.

Shaking Stering Wheel in a 2006 Jeep


If it shake only when the brakes are applied, then it is a brake issue/ uneven wear on the pads & discs.
There are upper and lower control arms, but if they are bolted tight, it shouldn't be the issue. If you hear clicking, check out you CV joints.
Have you rotated you tires? Patterns can wear in and cause lots of shaking.

My jeep ticks constantly and the front end shakes


likely two unrelated problems. If you have good oil pressure (usually around 40psi) your lifters are sticking or you have wear on lifters, cam, rocker pivots (pick one). Cure can be as simple as using marvel oil in each oil change or replacing whatever has worn. Front end should be thoroughly checked for wear, wheel balance should be checked, tires checked for broken belts etc. Again, change anything that show up as bad.
