Tolerance of end float on a jeep cherokee 2000

    End float tolerance refers to the allowable movement of the rear wheel, when jacked up, in and out ie. when the wheel is pushed towards the axle and pulled away from the axle, the movement on my Cherokee is about 2mm is this within the manufacturers specification.
    Many thanks

OK in my world, I call that endplay. Your axle is not pressed into the bearing. It actually can slide in and out a bit. The axle is retained by a "c" clip inside the differential. Yes they do allow endplay to prevent the clip from wearing out. Yours is normal.

What type of rear end could a jeep Cherokee have? not sure on the year? Maybe 2000?

Not a dana 44 I bet. Dana 30 or 35, perhaps. If you google rear axle identification your should find a chart which reveals all.

Why is my 95 jeep cherokee feel like the rear end is floating? I have alredy checked the rear end axle barrings that is not the problem.

Please check the shock mounting hardware. Are the shocks in good shape? Additionally, make sure the trailing arms are not cracked.

Bad rear axle bearing and seal on a 2000 jeep grand

the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.

Replacing a rear axle on a 94 jeep grand cherokee 2wd

take the rear cover off of the rear end. make sure you have something to let the fluid drain in. turn the carrier until you see a 5/16ths bolt. take the bolt out and let the pin in the center of the carrier slide down enough to be able to slide the axle inward. that will release the c-clip. then when the c-clip i removed you can just pull the axle out of the houseing but mak sure to not let the carrier spin any while you are pulling the axle out.
