My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V-8 shakes something awful sometimes when I brake at speeds of 50mph+. It then starts to wobble and doesn`t brake good when that is happening. What is causing this to happen...


JoeYuma, find a journeyman mechanic and tell him your rotors are warped and watch him replace them. As it is 10 and who knows how many miles are on it; while you are in there put new calipers and pads in it too and take a gander at the rear brakes as well.

Do they still have a "boys town" south of the border down there?

2001 jeep grand cherokee driver side rear brake locked up. replaced brake pads and rotor. wheel still getting hot but not locked. could it be the parking brake?


it could be,, check the brake line going to the brake and see if it has play ,, also, it could be the caliper isn't flowing , once they get overheated the grease in them ( the slide pins) tend to get stuck ,, pull the caliper apart and clean all the old grease of and re lube them

The brakes on my 2001 Cherokee experience oscillation when applied, but they otherwise work. Any ideas?


The brake rotors are warped. Brake rotors are the piece of metal that the brake pads press up against to stop the car. Sometimes these warp from heat.

How to replace rear brake pads on 2004 Jeep Cherokee 4x4


take it to a mechanic....;) I have a 2003 jeep grand cherokee 4 wheel drive V8. there probably is not much difference between year models. frist thing remove the back tire you will see the caliper and rotor. check the rotor if it has deep groves on the front or back you will need to bring it in to have it turned or replaced if it is still smooth it should be ok. remove the caliper by taking the two bolts off the back of the caliper. using a pice of wire hang the caliper so it isn't dangling from the brake line. Now is the time to replace rotor if needed .Get a pair of vice grips crimp off the brake line so any trash in the caliper doesn't get into the brake system (if you let the contaminants get into the brake system it can cause costly repairs to the abs system). open up the bleeder valve most of the time close to where the brake line goes into the caliper and usually has a rubber cap. open bleeder valve, take a c-clamp place on inner brake pad and outside of caliper tighten until caliper is all of the way open close bleeder valve. replace brake pads put caliper back on recommend using lock tight on bolts holding caliper on snug fasteners but do not over tighten, lock tight will keep bolts from backing out. do the other side the same way. pull up emergency brake to and pump brake pedal to adjust brakes. bleed brakes and you are done

Brake shutter on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee - new rotors and pads


You got shutter ......do you mean shudder when braking and if so the problem with your brakes are that the pads dont work well with the rotors (dont care what the makers say) just see if you can get your self a set of PRIME disc pads and fit them to the front and make sure that the whole unit are bolted on tight and no movement in wheel bearings....

I think my front rotors are warped!


it depends on if there is enough metal to have them turn. often right out of the box they need to be machined. you can often pick up a set at a junk yard and have them turned.

hard to say which is cheaper as i'm uncertain of the cost of new rotors.
