Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
I have a slight vibration between in the Jeep that appears between 68 mph and 72 mph only on acceleration. If I get above 72 mph and go to neutral the vibration does not exist on deceleration. Since the issue is at 2000rpm I put the Jeep into D2 and the vibration does not exist (eliminating the drive shaft). The vibration feels like a tire out of balance but on all four wheels. I had the "Death Wobble" replaced the steering damper, track bar, upper and lower control arms, upper and lower ball joints and shocks and had the Jeep aligned. The slight vibration was there before the "Death Wobble" and did not get resolved with all these new parts. The "Death Wobble" was fixed. I'm thinking about replacing the tires, the Jeep can handle 225/75/16's or 245/70/16's which would you recommend for a smoother ride? ...Bob

A good bump will make that jeep shimmy real bad If the steering damper
is bad. If the damper has visible oil leak or has more the 20,000
miles on it-Replace it.

thiers many of things that can cause that, first off with your kit i didnt see lower adjustible
arms so with that much lift your diff angle could be off. needs to be 7deg. also if your sure the ball joints are perfect and its alined right them look at the stearing box for play in the arm . it can be adjusted with the set screw. jeep-xj.com hope that helps....

Lifting can change the front end geometry. Have the alignment checked and if possible add a bit of positive caster. Sure the BJ's are good? Checked the track bar mount to make sure it's tight and not worn oblong where the bolt goes through? also check steering box mount points for cracks or flexing when turning. If you do any off-roading, check the wheel and mount flanges for side run out a slight bend there can get the tires shaking especially if you have gone to a larger size. A bad hub bearing can do that as well but usually it is caused by a loose steering component. Sometimes you need to go over it two or three times before you find anything. One rule with this...never assume anything is good until you have very carefully inspected each and every part. I've been through this many times on numerous different vehicles and though most times it is the ball joints or track bar mount, it can be totally baffling and surprising at what can make it happen.!!
