Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
When i turn all the way right the jeep it grids and hops like its binding up
someone at one of the parts store said it sounded like the wheel hub
but i'm not sure what that is.
They used to do that as "normal" when they had universal joints on the axle ends...I believe you have c/v joints there...If one has gone bad, it's possible that is causing the same problem...Check the boots on the wheel end of the axles...If they are torn, it's a good indication that the joint has gotten contaminated with road dirt and has failed. The hubs are actually a sealed double roller bearing that's used in place of the old style individual roller bearings. If it is really bad, it can bind but usually rumbles and causes a vibration in the wheel at speed. It is located inside the steering knuckle where the axle passes through, and is part of the flange that your wheel bolts to. With the brakes and rotor removed if you feel any roughness when you turn that flange then the bearing is bad...Don't forget turning by hand is far less demanding than turning with the vehicle weight on it so any roughness is magnified far beyond what you feel.
