Have the sway bar looked at in the back. if it is loose or broken it will sway. it is the bar connecting the two rear wheels. there are upgrade kits that offer a heavier bar. Also check rear tire pressure. the tires will roll out if too low a pressure is aboard.

A 2000 jeep grand Cherokee limited, bad wobble I replaced tires, had them aligned and balanced replaced inner and outer tie-rod ends, track bar sway bar bushings, steering assist, ball joints .


wobble of the steering is a wheel alignment problem regardless of having an alignment done
if your vehicle has a "live"front axle ( not independent suspension) the alignment is fixed to toe in toe out settings by the manufacturer
however spring sag and pivot pin(king pin bearings)wear alters that setting
There are devices available on the market that can be fitted by accredited suspension service shops that allow the alteration of the castor and camber settings ( you have a castor wobble) so talk with these shops and get ideas of what you can do
if it has independent suspension these settings can be easily set and should be set to around 1 to 1 1/2 degrees positive with toe in set to around 1/8 ti 1/4 "
a point that most alignment shops don't mention is that the rear end has to be aligned first so that the steering wheels are in the same "track" otherwise the front alignment is a waste if time as the vehicle will tend to run sideways down the road
it is an extra cost but well wort the expense when chasing a problem
next point --if the cv or "U" joints are failing then they will tend to have hard stops when steering and this will set of steering problems
lastly , big wide tyres are hard to align because of the amount of rubber on the road and to get the comprise between correct alignment and reduced tyre wear is hard to achieve

Your saying you did none of the parts replacement yourself,
or only some of it & no accident involved?

Was this problem not detected by the alignment shop & did you
not go for a ride with them, even before you discovered your
back to square one.

There is no reason a vehicle that new should have all that wear
& no reason, as I guess your saying, that with all the work, it isn't
resolved.

What started the issues going back a year or so?

Rear end body sways back and forth on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee


check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

My front wheel staggers when at speeds 40 to 50 mph.But around the speeds of 60 mph it stops. I have tried new tires but no luck.This 97 jeep cheroke is a head-ache


Get the alignment done on your vehicle and make sure all the tires are properly balanced. Look for play in the sway bar and also have the wheel bearings checked out.

What would cause a 1999 couger to sway from one side of the road to another


tire cord problems, alignment causing uneven tire wear, worn suspension parts such as struts and tie rod ends or a worn steering rack and pinion, any tire shop can check this out uin most cases for free.
