    I have solved this problem. I wanted to know because I was going to be fixing this car in the country, miles away from any stores. The 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee LTD has phenolic pistons on the rear disc brakes and they push back. No special tools are required

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake Problem. Brake Pedal Falls To The Floor. Calipers were replaced twice,master cylinder,brake hoses and pads. Systemm has been bleed numerous times - no air but the brake...


This may sound dum but its been done a few times and is a simple mistake , the bleeder screw is up top, with the caliper on the bleeder screw should be up top, if not then calipers are on the wrong side, it sounds like air in the system, also you pumped the pedal up to push out the piston so pads hit rotor after bleeding,i dont see anything else, if the pedal is good with pinched lines at caliper then it got to be calipers are wrong or on the wrong side and the bleeder is not atop caliper,also you bleed the rear also? these trucks and cars use left caliper and rt rear on one system of the master and rt front and left rear on one side, let me know about the caliper, heres a picture to show you what i mean. hope this helpsjohnjohn2_23.jpg

What tool is used to remove the brake pads for Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001 8 cylinder 4x4


10 mm socket to remove the caliper slide bolts, a decent sized screwdriver to pry the caliper up off the rotor and a large "c" clamp to drive the piston back into the caliper housing so the new pads will fit over the rotor. Use an old pad over the caliper piston when driving it back in so you don't damage it, be careful not to pinch the piston boot under the new pad and make sure the slides move and that you use some grease on the slide bolts when putting them back in. Also be careful not to cross-thread the pins when re-installing. After you have finished, step on the brake a few times to get the pads into position and remove any excessive clearance. If you don't open the hydraulic system, no bleeding is necessary.
Rears are more complicated so get a haynes or chilton manual for that.

When I drive over 40 mph it pulls to the right, then to the back


You are going to have to do some looking to find this.
Check that the wheels turn freely when off the ground. any binding can indicate a brake staying applied. (usually an internally failed brake hose (not line) This is often mis-diagnosed as a bad caliper. Sometimes you can see a "blue" rotor on the one that's hanging up, or feel an excessive amount of heat from that wheel right after this happens.
Yes, check suspension parts and bearings but usually they will cause problems at all speeds, and cause "clunking" noises stopping, starting off and in turns.

1996 jeep grand cherokee ltd problem with transfer case because of different size tires


You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.
