200 jeep cherokee vibration when braking

Hi all, I get a wicked vibration in the front end only when braking. I don't notice the vibration unless I'm going at least 40 before trying to brake. I think it may be the rotors, but when I looked at them with the wheels off they don't seem to be warped when I spin them.

A vibration when braking can be a few things. Warped rotors are the most common cause, but a damaged ball joint in the front, or excessively worn shock could also be the cause.

Does it vibrate any other time?

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.

94 jeep grand cherokee front end vibration


Many things will cause vibrations, especially on 4WD trucks. Causes include: worn ball joints, worn tie rod ends, bent wheels, tires out of balance/shifted belt in tire, worn steering dampener, worn u-joints, worn CV joints, engine problems such as engine misfire, a bad fuel injector clogged fuel filter or injectors, worn ignition parts, etc. I suggest you apply the service brake in gear and give it a lot of throttle (power-brake)to determine if the engine is running smoothly or if it runs rough. Also, with the hood up, you can see the shaking if it occurs. If rough, check everything over and repair as necessary. If smooth, start checking ALL other vehicle systems and repair as necessary.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I leave in the morning their is a vibration in the front tires that lasts about 10-20 seconds.It feels like the tires are skipping


If it's a vibration, it might be a brake pad staying in contact with the disk. Normally the pads push away when the car starts moving. (A normal condition called "runout") Try stopping your Jeep tonite by using only rear brakes. (hand brake) Don't step on the brake pedal at all. Then see if it does it in the morning. Don't step on the brake pedal in the morning till the test 20 sec's is over.

If the problem is a thump thump sound it's probably a tire flat spot from setting. Have the tires just been replaced? Could be a softer tirs material.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V-8 shakes something awful sometimes when I brake at speeds of 50mph+. It then starts to wobble and doesn`t brake good. What is causing this to happen and how do I fix it?...


UNLESS there is a major front end issue the most common cause of the vibration is the rotors being out of round. this is easily correct by having a brake shop resurface the rotors. also the vibration could be coming from the rear as well. the way to determine if it rear or front is the next time you brake somewhere that it usually has the vibration try applying only the parking brake instead of the brake pedal. NOTE....when making this check be sure to hold the parking brake release button to prevent lock up of the brakes. the parking brake only works the rear brakes. this will determine where it is coming from. the back brakes will have either brake drums or either brake rotors. same philosophy but different operating mechanics. either way it can all be corrected by resurfacing the rotors and/or drums

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. There is a "violent" vibration that occurs only when you are going 40-60 MPH and you hit a bump or pot hole on the highway. The front end begins to...


Vibration from about 40-60 mph is usually attributed to wheel balancing, but the onset when you hit a bump seems to indicate play in the steering linkages (tie rods etc) or suspension members and stabiliser bar rubbers but you had that all checked out, that brings us back to the wheel balancing.

1996 jeep cherokee sport front end vibration driving at 50-70 mph


Hi:
The first thing to check is the drive shaft universal joints or cv joints, as they are prone to causing vibration at certain speeds. If they are ok, then try swapping your tires from the front to back, to eliminate them.
