    yes the alignment was done after new tires were put on. Acts like maybe the steering gear or box is worn. There is alot of play in the steering wheel.

The steering boxes are adjustable on those I believe, if you can find a good mechanic, or alignment shop in your area. No gaurantees but it may help.

Front wheel is bumpy at low speed. 4x4 stuck?


If the 4wd was engaged on dry pavement you would have a difficult time making a turn because the front tires would be turning at the same time.
If the bump or vibration is felt when you are driving down a straight road I would agree with the ball joint or other suspension theory.
I will note here that Jeep Cherokee came with two different kinds of 4wd, one version can be driven on dry roads when engaged.

No shock absorbing going on in the front end when hitting bumps & potholes, feels like riding a rigid frame ols school chopper! what part/parts need replacing to renew that absorbing, also seems front...


sounds like it is now time for new shocks. they are not to hard to install if you are mechanically inclined,, if not - if you stop by your local Midas* shop it should only take them about an hour to replace. the cost of new shocks depends on what quality and dependability you are looking for.
always ask about warranty when buying shocks. also when you get your Jeep worked on the mechanics will also be able to tell you how well your front brakes are holding up and most shops will grease all your bushings and they do a good job of getting you up to date on other parts that might need some service in the near or distant future,, always ask questions to stay informed about your Jeep.
Have a great New Year,

It road walks from side to side like the front end is loose. Have checked the steering gear box and tie rod ends and neither are loose.


make sure it is tracking right that is that the back tires are straight behind front tires try turning front wheels straight and get a string put it on the side of front tire and run it back to the rear tire string should be straight if not then the tracking is off

Shuts off will driving, especially if I hit a bumpy road.


check the wires to the fuel pump if they have rubbed against something and the insulation wore through hitting bumps or rain could cause it to short and kick the relay and resets again and will start

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)
