Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 95 Jeep grand Cherokee that I have just installed new CV joint shafts and all 4 front ball joints on. When test driving it, it goes down the road straight just fine and seems to take normal turns fine as well. When I make a tight turn (all the way to the lock) either left or right, the right front wheel locks up skidding and squealing on the road (it did the same thing before changing the CV joints but I assumed it was doing it because the joints were shot) Im lost as to the cause of this. I have the stock wheels and tires on the truck. The front differential maybe ? the front brakes seem to be in good condition. Can You help ?

Hi,

You need to check your top and bottom lateral arm bush's which connect to the front diff. and the chassis.
If any of these are worn excessively then this will cause this problem.

Also you have a lateral bar running across the front of the diff. check the bush's in this arm also.
But the main problem that you are having is worn control arm bush's which is putting the whole steering geometry out.

Let me know how you get on, or if you need more information.

Thanks

Jason

I have a 95 grand Cherokee orvis I I blew the front cvjoint drive shaft apart how does the top head go together ? Bearings the slotted crown . How does it stay together I have it apartt along with new...


the part that the bearings run in is possibly that worn it will not hold together. I have repaired CV Joints before and you usually replace the whole knuckle at the end of the shaft or exchange the shaft for a reconditioned one.

Jeep grand Cherokee transmission tail shaft


is that joint right there a U-joint or CV? Anywho check for play at that joint, There may be a little at the slip yoke, where the tailshaft comes out of the transfer-case , but nowhere else should have any. If those joints are loose: replace U-joint While your under there you might as well check the front drive-shaft also.

CV joint questions


well now,,,il tell you a storie,,,better sit down?
the cv joints are the joints in a drive train that for use of a better word "bend the drive shaft" so it dont brake when you turn a corner,,,ie:parking! inside the cv joint is held on the drive shaft be some splines in the drive shaft and a spring clip holds it all together there is an "inner bell" it has normaly 5 slots in it that have big "ball bearings" in them that slid around up and down these slots on the out side of the cv joint is the outer "bell" this also has slots that the ball bearings fit into so the drive trough the cv is compleat,,,when you turn the wheels the cv joints slids round on these ball bearings twisting round but the drive from the engine is still transmited to the road wheeles trough the cv
when this cv joint starts to were out the ball bearings are pitted and not ball shaped any more and the slots they run in are not smooth that to gets pitted what happens is the cv starts to "crack" under load,,,and vibrate when turning or being driven you drive down the road at 50 mph and the car feels like its driving over stones in the road its vidrating off the cv joint then when you turn the wheel on full lock to pull away you here a very big cracking or clicking sound, like,,,,,click click click, and the more power you put on the more they click very soon people start turning around and look at you? oh yes they here it to!
the vibration that comes off the cv will reck the transmission becouse of the wipping of the drive shafts,,,, to test your cv joints to see if there good or bad one's put the car on full lock and pull away,, if there is a cracking sound or a klicking sound there shot away and you need new ones fitted
now then,,,storie over,,, its time for sleepy sleeps

Noise from front


Is it full time or part time 4 wheel drive? You should check the front driveshaft u-joints.

Grinding or poping sounds when making slow tight corners


Could be ball joints are bad. But if its a 4x4 the cv joint half (axle shaft) is bad.
