What causes really bad vibration and steering wheel shake when my 1993 grand cherokee hits a bump at a speed over 55 mph


I had a similar problem and it was a combination of problems. Check the linkages and tie rods also your wheels for balancing and alignment. Hope this helps.

1999 Jeep-violent shaking of steering wheel when braking at 55 mph and then stops when speed lowers to say 40 mph. Only on highway, not streets. When first happened, installed new rotors and brakes, but...


1. out of balance tire because it sounds speed spacific.
2. worst of all! Loose lug nuts or possibly loose spindle nut. (you will need to lift the wheel off the ground to tell)
3. worn linkages i.e. ball joints, steering linkage, anything that would allow play in the front wheels.

I own a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. When I am driving on the freeway at 70 mph or faster my front wheels and my steering wheel begin to shake back and forth almost causing me to lose control whenever I...


The part you are looking at is the steering damper.It can be damaged by repeated shaking but won't cause it.
Likely the condition you have is caused by bad lower ball joints.
The lowers have no grease fittings and as such, fail earlier than the uppers. There are other causes but happen less often. Your track bar mount can wear oblong, overall cumulative wear of all front end parts can produce enough side to side play to do that or the wheels may not be torqued down exactly to specifications. In extreme cases where all is good but the shaking continues, you can have additional caster adjustment added to the alignment specs. I am assuming that your tires are properly balanced?

My jeep frount end shakes when i hit a pothole what makes it do that


Check your steering stability bar I had the same problem and it turned out that I had bent that bar.

The death wobble is basically when you are driving your lifted jeep down the road and the front end starts to shake violently. It can happen at virtually any speed, though mostly above 40 mph or so, and is a frightening experience, especially for those witnessing it for the first time. Now it doesn’t throw you off the road or anything … the front end just shakes. And the only way to stop it is to slow down and pull over. So it wasn’t that hard to get used to at first. But as it happened more and more, it seemed to get more and more out of control.

Hope help (remember comment and rated this).

97' jeep cherokee laredo shakes when driving


Could be a number of things from ball joints to your pitman arm(arm that steers the tires). It dont sound like tire are way out of balance because yu said it only starts when you hit a bump. If it was me, Id crawl under the front end and start shaking different parts until I figured out what was loose. if its shaking that bad you should definitly be able to tell when you shake it.

Shudders(shakes) at about 60mph


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

I had the exact same same issue with my 03 sahara at the exact same speed and it was a huge build up of dirt in the rims (live on gravel road)that may be the issue or you may have a badly balanced tire or a bad front end part(s) ball joint tie rod etc......
hope this helps!
