The same thing happened to my 1998 Jeep.
I replaced the steering stabalizer and the sway bar bushings. The death wobble stopped instantly. That wobble was the worst thing especially when merging onto a highway!!! I always tried to avoid bumpy roads!! Ha

I had this problem two Jeep Cherokees ago, it turn out to be the wheel bearings in one wheel. It wasn't that expensive to get fixed, I would check that.

#2575 of 2588 Cherokee Cylinder One Spark Plug Cracking
Sep 25, 2012 (1:01 pm)
I have a 94 Cherokee Sport w/170,000 miles. Recently it has started cracking the spark plug in cylinder one about every 3-4 weeks or about 500 miles.
Does anybody know why this is happening?
thanks for your help.

I am loosing some coolant. Is this a bad head gasket?

head gasket,water pump,radiator?who knows?? with it cracking the first plug,i'd discount the head gasket,as the wind from the cooling fan blows things from the front back..more likely the pump..
if your using coolant,FIX THAT QUICK!! or you WILL be replacing that head gasket,or engine!! overheating is how heads warp,and gaskets blow..
mecanics have a tool that pressurises the coolant system to help find leaks...shouldn't be that mutch,and a damn sight cheaper than replacing a overheated engine..good luck! i think your engine is giving you a warning that a catastrophie is lurking just around the corner..get on top of it,or it will get on top of you..k?
