Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When driving my 1996 Jeep Grand Cheroke on the beltway. When I reach the speed of 55mph or 60mph over a small bump on the road, the front end wheels goes into a vibration episode that will not stop antill I slow down to about 30mph. After reading some of the car talk consumers, I suspect that it could be that the ball joints are bad. Do you have any sujections. Looking forward to hearing from you soon about this problem. My Jeep has about 157,000 miles on it. I bought it used about 2 years ago. I had the tie rods changed last week and got a front end alignement last week. However, it still goes through a vibration episode when traveling on the beltway at speeds of 60mph. Need to fix this problem as soon as possiable. I can be reached at email@example.com
Here's the fix. Have all of the front end components checked for excessive play (tie rod ends, ball joints, pittman arm, and steering box) and replace any components that are worn. Also, REPLACE the steering stabilizer! It looks like a cross-mounted shock absorber attached to the frame and your steering linkage. These wear out and cause the exact condition that you've experienced.
