Yikes! I just had that happen to me, Have a shop inspect the front end completely. In mine there is a bracket that snapped, apparently its a part that often fails (according to my mechanic and the dealer). If you are lucky you can catch it early before it breaks the bracket and steering gearbox, and the power steering pump. The bracket costs about a little less then $300 and its a dealer part. The part is located on the frame and attached to the track bar. Oh yeah It could also be the track bar! See video for the problem I had. Hopefully it posts! If not send a message via Facebook.

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.

Front tire on passenger side shakes when i hit a bump at 20mph or higher.


perhaps a leaked out shock absorber....you might see an oily film on the lower half of the shock.....simplest place to start. If not that, then the front end should be checked for worn or broken component

Front wheels shake when I hit a bump in road


Pitman arm and tie rod ends and bail joints.The three main causes of front end shake after hitting a bump.There's so much slop that when you hit a bump it shakes violently from one end of the slop to the other.Very dangerous!You need to get this fixed now!
Get someone to turn the steering wheel while holding onto a front wheel and just watch for stuff that moves.Turn left and right and you'll see what's the worst for wear.The connections at the steering box arm(Pitman) and at the wheels(Tie rods) will be what moves the worst.Hope this helps?Autozone has a kit for the pitman for $100,probably be $600 at a shop.

Uncontrollable shimmy in frontend


Haha the death wobble replace the steering dampner or shock on the lower tortion bar of the suspension with an heavy duty upgraded one. Not a difficult repair check the tortion bar bushing for play. But the death wobble is caused by the steering shock. Seen it a lot fixes it every time. Hope the info helps rate it please.

The front end and steering wheel shakes when i hit a hole or bump


This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!
