Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

My jeep starts shaking violently when it reaches 55 miles/hr.

My jeep starts shaking violently when it reaches 55 miles per hour. It has been suggested that I have installed a shock absorber for the steering system that is currently absent on my jeep. The tires are not that bad. Am I on the right track?

Yes, if you are missing the "Steering Stabilizer" from the front end of that vehicle then you can expect there to be an un-stable steering control especially at higher speeds, and you should replace it and see if that solves the problem.

Other common causes for that to happen are bent rims, out of round or out of balance tires (the tires might even look alright and show no signs of a problem until you actually spin them and see if they are true.), worn out or damaged wheel/hub bearings, ball joints, or tie rods, a loose steering rack, the rear axle not tracking right with the front axle/tires, a loose or broken shock absorber or strut, a loose or broken motor mount or transmission mount, and then there is the drive shaft, and a bad universal joint can also cause that vibration.

If 360 km per hour is equal to 40 miles per hour, please show me how to calculate using formular


360 km/hr is NOT 40 miles/hr.
1 mile is about 1.6 km
To go from km to miles, multiply by 0.62
To go from miles to km, multiply by 1.6

Kilometers per hour to Miles per hour

sounds like a broken belt in a tire or the wheels need rebalanced. i would recommend that you have your tires rotated and balanced by a trusted tire store.

Front end shakes violently ay 40 milss per hour


have a look at your tires,to see if there is uneven wear, also for a little money, have your wheel alignment and tracking angle checked, these are the usual causes of shaking at undefined speeds....

P.S. does the shaking go away above 45 m.p.h.
if so, then its your wheel balancing

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour


Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.
