I took my 2000 Grand Cherokee in for alignment check. They installed a new right front CV axle shaft, new front and rear gas shocks and did alignment. It still pulled and the steering was off- lots of play in steering, resistance when trying to steer, just felt out of sink with the vehicle. Took it back . They replaced the right front upper outer tie rod end, realigned and installed new rear axle seals. It is still pulling and steering is worse. Lots of resistance, vehicle doesn't respond to steering wheel like it used to. Spent a ton of money and vehicle is worse than when I first took it in. Any advice? Thank you! Jonell

How are the tires? Replacing axle seals wouldn't have corrected this issue. Were they leaking? Have them check the alignment again for no charge. If you want have someone else look at.

The tires are less than a year old. They told me the seals were leaking. A friend told me that if you replace a rod end on one side you have to replace it on the other. He also said if you replace rod ends you should also replace the Pittman (?) arm, idler arm and have the ball joints checked. Is it true that you don't just replace one side? Thanks so much for responding.
