Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Violent rear end shake

Randomly, with no particular speeds, will be driving along and the rear end starts to violently shake and sounds like one of rear brakes are engaging and disengaging while trying to slow down. The shake only stops when come to complete stop then we can drive for another mile or so before it does it again. Then if jeep sits for a day it will drive a day or two with no problem then it will strike again with no rhyme or reason. HELP!

SOURCE: jeep front end shakes badly

Bent rods....Okay...first thing...did you hit anything or or run over anything? Second, did you go off-roading....

It could be a few things....some easy and some expensive...but need to know what you have done with the Jeep first.

SOURCE: 1999 Jeep-violent shaking of steering

1. out of balance tire because it sounds speed spacific.
2. worst of all! Loose lug nuts or possibly loose spindle nut. (you will need to lift the wheel off the ground to tell)
3. worn linkages i.e. ball joints, steering linkage, anything that would allow play in the front wheels.

Violent shake on highway


Unbalanced wheels shake a vehicle like that. It's hard to understand your earlier statement. It sounded like after you weren't moving anymore that it still shook. I am figuring that isn't what you meant.

Steering wheel and tire issue


Have a front end suspension check done to eliminate any worm ball joints -shockies- worn suspension rubbers-- steering problems. If ok have a wheel alignment done and have the rear end aligned first as it affects the front alignment. The violent wobble is castor wobble and indicates negative castor possible from sagging suspension springs. The camber is out at that results in the car following every dip in the road. The camber has to work in conjunction with the toe-in measurement and if the 2 are not correct then you will have problems.

My 99 jeep cherokee shakes in front end around 60mph


You didn't supply a lot of info but generally a consistent shake at a particular speed is caused by wheel balance being off. Before having the balance checked look at the wheels inside and outside. Many times you can get either mud or ice packed in that will disturb the balance.
If balance is good, then you need to have the front end components checked for wear. If the shaking is very violent, it may be what's known as "death wobble" which can stem from excessive wear of components, usually either ball joints or track bar but everything's suspect. If you have that you can't mistake it as the steering wheel feels like it is trying to rip right out of your hands!!!.

Violent wheel shake sometimes


check the tie rod ends, and if they are bad replace them .. (tip) if you replace them , count the threads on the old ones and set the new ones the same.. if you have to have it realigned, the alignment will be minimum ..

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.
