Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2001 Grand Cherokee LTD, When I step on the brakes my left front wheel vibrates like it has a warped rotor. I have replaced the rotor and had it turned a couple times thinking it was warped. Anytime I take it apart and put it back together, it works fine for a short period and then starts vibrating again, and only when I apply the brakes, otherwise it rides smooth. Am I looking at a defective CV Joint is it possible the caliper is causing it? It does have ABS brakes.
I had this problem within the firs year of ownership. Found out there was a recall around this problem and it was taken care of. Check with the dealer. Will try to find my service receipt and give you the correct name.

I doubt it is a c/v joint. You may have a bad caliper. Drive arround the block and feel the temperature of the wheels. DO NOT FEEL THE ROTOR after driving it- it will burn your finger bad. touch the rim portion of the wheel. if no difference drive farther or when you get to or home from work. is the rotor blue or discolored? the pads could be binding in the mounting bracket and your slider pins could be frozen but this usually has a worn out inner pad.
check these and let me know... Good luck
