Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I recently purchased a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee larado and today I noticed the front end started to shake so I thought the tires might need balancing. Got that done.but still the front end continues to shake when I hit 65 mph. Could it be the alignment? Or the wheel bearings are worn?. The front passanger also has begun to where alot faster also. The jeep has 102,000 on it. Was wondering what the problem could be and is it expensive to fix.

There are a few things that could make this happen, it could be that you have a tire that is out of round, that the front end is out of alignment, that you have a bent wheel, or that you have a bad/weak strut/shock. When the tires were balanced the technician should have been able to see if the tire was out of round, or that the wheel was bent, but remember that SHOULD happens and he may not have known to look for those issues. I would recommend that you have the alignment checked out, it is free at most places, and they can give you a better more precise answer to your issue, seeing as they will be able to inspect all of the suspect parts.

2005 jeep cherokee front end pulsating


Please have this checked out as soon as possible. Either you, a Mechanic, or an alignment shop, need to check out the front-end and all four points. Something has changed, broke, or is loose and worn out. Check: Ball-joints, wheel bearings, tie-rods, rims, lug-nuts, tires, tire balance, tire inflation, tire tread wear, alignment, U-joints, shocks, and suspension. Let me know if I can be anymore help, good luck.

I have a wicked front end shake at 30 MPH, but it goes away.I Have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Is this just my tires?


Need more info. Does it shake during acceleration or braking? Have you recently had new tire put on? A couple of suggestions.... Check tires to make sure no lugs came loose, check brake area, could even be a loose motor mount. Check easiest stuff first.

Dodge is known for using rubber bushings in everything. They don't squeak like the poly ones do but they do rot after 10 or 15 years and cause clunking noises like you described. More than likely your clunking is coming from a tie rod which is what connects your steering wheel to your tires. Crawl under the truck near the wheel and look for the steel bar that hooks up to the back of it. Have a friend turn the wheel back and forth, or grab the bar and give it a hard shake. If there is any play, the bushing is shot. You can replace the tie rod ends yourself using the old ones to compare but it will still need an alignment, so I usually let a shop do it. New poly bushings will cost a little more but you will never have to replace them again. A good alignment shop should charge less than $200

sounds like it time to have the front end balljoints inspected. Only with an inspection will you get the proper results. Why guess, this is a safety issue.

You may have worn out CV joints on the front wheel drive axles, they vibrate/shudder badly if they are really worn out.

A very good possibility is a bad trac bar in the front-end, also how old is the front steering damper?
