1996 Jeep grand cherokee steering problem

When driving my jeep the steering is stiff (right or left). Essentially there is no recoil back to the straight position once i've turned the wheel. I tried it in a parking lot and when I turned it to the right or left it would keep doing circles and never straighten out. Any ideas? I know this happened gradually because i never noticed i was bringing the wheel back to the straight position it was only when someone else drove my jeep that they told me.

    Thanks the tie rod's are new and also the universals. So I will assume it must be the ball joint?

  • drshawnrossi Jul 29, 2008

    Can it be the dampner shock?

the steering rack needs to be replaced..the fan has nothing to do with the rack so that's some "other issue" but it isn't related to the steering.

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model


The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4

97 Jeep grand cherokee with stiff steering at 9:00 and 3:00...


Check and see if the Power Steering Pump is Low on Fluid. If not Low, you could have a Leak in the Pump or Lines and will need to be Replaced. Also Make sure that the Belt is good and Tight. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
