Why does my jeep vigorously shake after either going over 50mph or a bump n i'm not talkn about a vibration plz help...tie rods,sway bars, track/control arm, new tires,4x alignment, pwr steer pump


I had the same problem with mine, if u look on the drivers side there is a bracket bolted to the frame that the drag link hooks too. If this bracket is cracked or broken or bolts have come loose or fallen out, your front end will go crazy after htting a bump at any speed over say 25 mph.

What is the name of the bracket the spring sits in on 1994 f150 4x4 single shock frnt end bolts to the frame


If it's the part on the upper end of the coilspring, and it is a coilover suspension in front (meaning the shock absorber is mounted in the middle of the coilspring) then it is a called the shock top plate, and if it is a model where the shock absorver and coilspring are mounted one beside the other, then the bracket is called simply the spring seat. Although in both cases you can just ask for a spring seat for the front suspension and they will give you the right part and will know what you're talking about. If it is the part on the lower end of the coilspring, then it is called the control arm and is usually a one piece unit consisting of the control arm itself, the ball joints and the mount bushings.
