Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1995 jeep cherokee severe shudder over 50mph

When driving on the Freeway over 50 MPH and hitting a bump the front-end starts to shake/shudder violently. Only way to stop the shudder is to slow down below 30 MPH. Already replaced Steering Gearbox, Shocks, Steering Damper, Jounce Bumps, Stabelizer bushings and links. There are no loose Ball-Joints and everything seems tight.

SOURCE: FRONT TIRE BOUNCE AT 40-50 MPH

relace your shocks. the design of any dampner(strut or shock design) is to return the wheel to the road for handling and safety. when the shock is worn out is with continue to bounce like a basketball. it has no more strength to return to wheel to the road. a common misconception is that they are there to absorb, not true. the springs or torsion bars are there to absorb and create ride height. the shock does nothing more then return the wheel to the road. simple and inexpensive.

SOURCE: FRONT TIRE BOUNCE AT 40-50 MPH

2 Possible issues: When the tires hit a bump, it causes them to lose the "drag" that they need to be in position & if the alignment is off more than just a little, you will get a hopping tire as it attempts to regain it posture. Slowing down allows the drag from the brakes to help get it back in line.

I've seen tires with water do a similar thing which makes sense since when the water gets disturbed inside of them, it would cause the "balanced" tire to be out of balance. I specifically had a mechanic in my early years, '74 attempt to balance a tire using the type of balancer that dealerships used that was pushed up against the tire mounted on the vehicle, it rotated the tire & the mechanic adjusted the little balancers mounted on the wheel to determine the location & need for weight. "OLD but it worked. He couldn't get my tire to balance & it would start bouncing during the test-off & on. I later discovered by replacing the tire that it had a few cups of water in it & by the rust of the wheel, it had been there for a while. After that, I've checked & found water more than once & it has cured many a bounce & imbalance situation. Good Luck

Why does my jeep vigorously shake after either going over 50mph or a bump n i'm not talkn about a vibration plz help...tie rods,sway bars, track/control arm, new tires,4x alignment, pwr steer pump


I had the same problem with mine, if u look on the drivers side there is a bracket bolted to the frame that the drag link hooks too. If this bracket is cracked or broken or bolts have come loose or fallen out, your front end will go crazy after htting a bump at any speed over say 25 mph.

Everytime i go on 40 mph or above and hit a bump the whole car shakes as if i have a flat in the front


Couple things to look at:

Tire inflation pressure
Tire Balance
Front end wear - including ball joints etc.
Steering gear wear or adjustment
Front end alignment
Faulty wheel bearings

You probably cannot fix this. Please take your 1995 Jeep to your mechanic that specializes in front end maintenance and have him or her take a look at it. Get this done soon as I think your car is dangerous to operate at this time to both you and others on the highway. This condition will not improve if you ignore it.

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.

When you drive 45 mph and above the front end shakes real bad


very good chance you will need tie rod ends, is there squeaking during turns? (ball joints) hit a bump at higher speeds and the car sways left and right? any other symptoms?

If i hit a small bump at 50 mph, front ends shakes so bad,I have to stop truck \r\nalso lots of play in steering


My friend, you have very serious wear in the front end of your vehicle as evidenced by the severe vibration when you hit a bump. The front end steering equipment in your Jeep is very complex requiring special tools and expertise to properly repair. Please get your 1995 Jeep looked at soon by a front end alignment specialty shop in your area. This is a very dangerous condition.

Wheels shake terribly on 95 jeep laredo when I hit a bump over 50


Get front end checked out a.s.a.p. as this could be a part ready to go, and steering could go with it. Steering link, tie rod end, idler arm all come to mind. Personally I wouldn't drive it too far if at all, and not at a high speed until I'm sure what it is.

Have your front end checked,I believe you have small u-joints in your front axles and they go bad.I dont believe they can be greased.

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour


Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.

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.
