Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
First, the shop diagnosis sounds a bit strange, unless you are not understanding what you were told.
I have heard of a radius arm but likely I've called it by a different name (like the proper name for a driveshaft is a propeller shaft, but if you call it that no one will know what you're talking about) The part I fail to understand is that its preventing the wheel from freewheeling? Makes no sense.
I suggest that you either have them put the car in the air and physically show you what they are telling you, or have another shop take a look at it and see what they find.
Most front end shimmy I've seen is usually caused by bad ball joints or a bad bushing elsewhere in the suspension.
