Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
2001 WJ Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4 Wheel disc brakes. 2.5 in lift, all tie rod ends, calipers, disks and pads changed out for 11 Months, even changed steering gearbox. Brake pedal pulsing, and veh front end wobbles when braking. ABS light came on briefly 2 or 3 times, then went out. Garage tells me rotors need turned and pads need replaced. Pulsing and wobble is worst when applying brakes between 40 - 60 mph. What is going on? I am tired of treating symptoms. Thanks.
I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)

SOURCE: ABS braking
have you check? the master cylinder. sometine when you get the rotors cut they dont come out right because they may be warped or to thin. if you did the job yourself you might have put the calipers in on the wrong side. this happens alot . if your rotors front and rear are fine then switch the calipers to the other side.

Couple of checks , mud in front rims will give you a wobble. Front tire cord seperation or loose wheel nuts. , Wore out tie rod end, front wheel bearing play, or a weight has fallen off the rim and it needs balancing. If it is vibrating your steering wheel, have the front end looked at right away.

have you checked the wheel bearings? with that wheel raised up off the ground with a jack and on a jack stand, place your hands at the sides of the tire and give it a shake, do the same with your hands at like the 3 o clock and 10 o clock position as to not get your hand hurt if something moves loose, and shake there to, if you feel any play it could be a tie rod, or control arm, spin the tire and listen for any noise, if you hear any you more then likely have a bad bearing....
