Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

My jeep has had this problem for the last year, when I push on the brakes my car/wheels shakes side and feels like it is jumping a little. I know it sounds like brakes but I have had them replace and checked out- I don't know what else to do. I also had the problem itself checked out and they could not find anything htat could be causing hte problem. Thanks

    Thanks, I hope your right- they were suppossed to check that, and one person said they were fine, but I have a tendency to think that you are right.

The description you give is consistant with the way a car will behave with warped rotors. Have you had the rotors turned. If not, that is the issue. The longer it goes, the worse it will get. The contact patch, (the shiney part), where the brake pads ride can be checked with a dial indicator, by positioning the indicator rod on the contact patch and turning the rotor, you can determine down to the 1/1000th how far out of true your rotors are. Good Luck. I hope you find this to be helpful!

Shaking at low speed


Does it shake all the time, or only when you use the brakes ?
A slow speed shake without using the brakes is most often a bad tire. The alignment only affects how the car steers.

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.


Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

Brakesa are jumping when brakes are applied


i do believe you mean the service brakes, and when pushing the brake pedal the truck shakes?

Pad transfer will cause uneven brake discs with humps on em. Every time you then step on the brake pedal you'll feel the pads going over the humps, causing the shakes.

The best way to get rid of this is to replace the disc brakes with new discs.
Remember to change the pads too.

Left front wheel wobbles when braking


have you checked the wheel bearings? with that wheel raised up off the ground with a jack and on a jack stand, place your hands at the sides of the tire and give it a shake, do the same with your hands at like the 3 o clock and 10 o clock position as to not get your hand hurt if something moves loose, and shake there to, if you feel any play it could be a tie rod, or control arm, spin the tire and listen for any noise, if you hear any you more then likely have a bad bearing....

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.
