This is a 4runner we did a solix axle swap on. httphome.off-road.commithrandirflexindex.html Okay first thing youll notice in the picture 4th row down and 3rd from the left the axle up front acts as a lever - allowing the tires to move along a plane.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Lower front suspension arm

Hi i have a stock 1998 jeep grand cherokee. I was doing a little offroading with some co-workers and bent the passenger side front lower suspension arm. The arm itself looks straight i guess but the bracket that holds it to the front axle is bent. I was wondering if it would be dangerous to drive until i get time to fix it. Everything rides and sounds normal. None of the welds are cracked that i can see. Also any ideas on what a used arm might cost at the junkyard if i need one

JEEP CHEROKEE Front suspension problem - Cherokee 1989

Hi Couple weeks ago I changed Coil spring - standard size - dedicated to jeep cherokee but springs are new - so the car is little bit lifted - 1 higher. I put new tire - original size should be 22575R15 - my tire are 23575R15. After these upgrade I noticed that if I drive fast - 60 mph and road is not flat (some bumbs rough asfalt with high frequency and density crosswise waves) front of the car starts

You need to find and tighten any loose parts or locate and replace any front end parts that are worn out. Death wobble is not similar to a wobble from an unbalanced tire. It is by far worse. When death wobble hits you will know&8230 it&8217s a violent shake from the front end that feels like the jeep is about to fall apart. Usually when it happens the only thing you can do to stop it is to slow down.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Front Right Suspension Problem clunk and rapid bounce over bumps. 96 Grand Cherokee

I have a 96 jeep Grand cherokee 4x4 and some times when Im doing 30-40 miles and hour and I hit a bump can be small or big sometimes the wheel will bounce very rapidly over and over again. It would bounce like 10 times in 5 seconds. It feels like the car is trying to bounce off the ground on the front passenger side.

JEEP CHEROKEE Front end vibenoise when suspension is compressed

Please forgive me if this is a stupid question but from what I can gather its not a wicked common problem and I cant seem to find the answer. My XJ is sitting on about 3 of lift up front. Other than the new suspension and having an alignment done Ive done nothing to the front end. It drives down the road fine but upwards of about 55 MPH the driveline starts to make a loud groan that quickly gets louder

Hi there. Im replacing basically every thing in the front suspension. Tie rods ball jointscoil spacerssteering damperall. But there is one thing I dont like.

JEEP CHEROKEE Front suspension clunking noise Any help appreciated.

Ok well Ive had my 96 Sport for several months now and really love it. It has way too much power compared to the tiny 2.8 V6 that was in my Jimmy and the jeep just plain drives wonderfully. One thing bothers me though whenever I go over a large bump (such as a pothole or when I pull into a driveway) I hear this clunk noise from somewhere around the front tires.

JEEP CHEROKEE What needs attention Front suspension area

I recently purchased a 1996 cherokee Country with 115k miles..It runs great and I am about to take it to a tire shop in a day or two to have different tires put on it.

That way I can ask the tire shop to look into any areas

JEEP CHEROKEE Crash damage - front suspension bent - thoughts

So in a parking lot on Christmas Eve our 98 cherokee was t-boned at a fair speed on the passenger side. Body damage was minimal - crumpling around the front wheel fendor - new fender or hammer and live with it but the main blow must have been delivered on the wheels. The rear tire blew - no big deal - and the whole front end shunted a couple of inches to the right. The most obvious distortion is to

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Front Suspension Questions

Hi I bought my first jeep yesterday 96 limited 5.2L . Runs great drives like crap has a 4.5 OME lift on it with 31 tires everything else seems to be stock. It does have DEATH WOBBLE which i am trying to fix. The first thing i noticed was the shocks had movement after looking closer the bottom gromlets are worn out and the top ones are gone. This i would assume is just a side effect of the death wobble.

I should clarify the jeep does turn right however the radius is larger than my F250 and it turns to far to the left will almost turn back onto its self. The disconnect issue is just a loose bolt (not sure why the guy didnt tighten it all the way down). He swears its a OME lift the only thing I have found that says its a OME 4.5 lift is at httpwww.rocky-road.comzjome.html . I really couldnt tell you

Also with the steering from where the wheels are straight there is only 34 of a turn to the right while 1 and 14 of a turn left. I am hoping the steering can be corrected with an alignment after i replace all the TREs and bushing throughout the front suspension. I checked for slack in the steering box (having my wife slowly turn the wheel as i watched the pitman arm). Didnt see anything bad there it started to move at the exact time she turned the wheel with no pauses during rotation in either direction and no slack when changing from one direction to the other. Still waiting on parts arrival before tearing the front suspension out. jeep has 232k miles and from what i can tell almost zero maintenance.

1. you have a first gen 249 tcase and when you pull the front driveshaft the jeep will roll when in park and burn up the viscous coupling. 2. all ZJ front suspension components are the same regardless of year engine etc 3. i would not buy off brand balljounts and TREs. get moog. 4. i want to make sure you are aware that you HAVE to have some sort of stub shaft in the front hubs for them to stay together.

JEEP CHEROKEE Front end suspension feels loose

Back when I lifted my jeep I used a trac-bar relocator bracket instead of an adj. trac-bar but later when I put spacers in front I also installed an adj. trac-bar but didnt remove the relocator bracket. Also I think I messed up my TREs when installing the spacers because I had to stuff one side of the axle up and droop the other as far as I could (numorouse times) to get the coils out (even with the

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Front suspension feels REALLY loose - what could be wrong

On the 2011 G.C. limited I just purcahse I noticed the front suspension feels really loose. Ive had other jeeps before so not sure if this is normal but I dont think so.

It shakes enough that the HIDs shake too and thats annoying. just wondering if anyone has experienced this and what the possible causes could be. I noticed there is a TSB that might be related.

JEEP CHEROKEE Front suspension noise normal

I have replaced everything suspension steering and drive line. Lifted 5. No wobble. But I am just wondering if the thump or noise I hear up front in the suspension when I hit a sharp bump or fwy washboard is just the result of my mods.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE I ZJ Question for anyone with a 93 with stock front suspension

I need to replace my front bumpstops and the cups they fit into are so corroded that the little tangs that hold the bumpstops have rusted away. So Im looking at the Mopar catalog to replace the cups and the diagram of the front suspension indicates that there is a spacer (part 5200 5645) that goes between the cup and the body frame but my ZJ doesnt have this - the cups just bolt directly onto the frame.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Front suspension overhaul

So Im spending some of my tax return back on doing a complete front suspension overhaul. I plan on replacing all tie rod ends with sleeves track bar bushings and control arm bushings.

I just want to double check and see if the part numbers are correct before I buy. Track bar bushing

OME(old man emu) is one of the best suspension available for the liberty. Boulder bars carries this suspension but they may only have HD springs. If you do not have an after market bumper (such as ARB) then you only need light duty springs. Im not sure if they can order them or not. They carry the OME shocks you need for both the front and rear. This will give you around 1.5in of lift and a much better ride. Just remember that its one of the best but also one of the most .
