Death Wobble Repair

Asked by Jun 14, 2017 at 04:41 PM about the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee.  At 45mph, going down hill and slightly
applying the brakes, the entire front end shakes to beat the band!  I have
replaced the track bar, lower control arms, rotors, pads and calipers...  still
shakes.  I am a bit concerned that the new control arms seem to have a fair
mount of play in them. Any help would be appreciated...  getting expensive!

Check the tires to see if they are not worn and balanced. Check the front wheel bearings and loose parts, like tie-rod ends. I'd also look at your steering stabilizer.

Bearings are good, as well as tie-rod ends. Replaces the Shocks and the steering stabilizer. I put Moog lower control arms on. May replace them with Mopar parts, and if I still have the problem I will have the tires replaced, balanced, and aligned. They were going to be replaced by end of summer anyway... becoming a money pit!
