That could be a lot of things: control arm bushings, tierods, steering stabilizer, control arm mounts, etc.
I have a '98 that is lifted that will make a "creak" when I turn really sharp but I think that has more to do with the polyurethane bushings than anything else.
I'd take it in to a garage or have a knowledgeable friend take a look to see what they find. It may be nothing, it may be a problem.
By the way, I have over 168,000 miles on my '98 and she's still going strong.

Did you ever get your problem resolved? My friend just came from AAMCO, they gave him codes as well, told him he needed to have his transmission rebuilt for $3200, he's taking the jeep to Dealership for second opinion. His check engine light has come on a few times over the last few months, but goes off after a few hours...

Wow, AAMCO told him he needed his transmission rebuilt. I didn't see that one coming...........
Your friend is smart for getting a second opinion.
Did the techs at AAMCO tell him what the codes were? That may point to why the MIL is coming on.

Just was going to post a message and see what people thought about my Jeep. I got the jeep in December of 04. I have had to take it in once to get the sway bar bushings replaced. It has 69000 on it and i was just wondering if there is anything i need to look out for in the near future or if there is anything i should replace before it leads to a bigger problem.

I've had the same problem with my 97 JGC Laredo. I've tried many of the same things and still had the problem come back. Really curious if anybody knows anything about this.
#1297 of 5143 noise and shake from front end
May 31, 2005 (3:07 pm)
i have a 1995 jgc and when i am going about 45-55 mph and let off the gas or apply the brakes i get a knocking, shaking, shimmy from the front end. I dont know what it is. i just had the tie-rod ends replaced but still have the same problem.

Search back a few pages and you'll get some advice on the shimmy. The agreed upon MOST possible source is your steering stabilizer (a horizontally mounted shock absorber on your front axle). Steering stabilizers are cheap (around $40 or so) and pretty easy to replace. I'd start there.

I looked at my jeep and I don't see how you can get to the latch except from outside the vehicle. Maybe you can get in there with a screwdriver or try to use what's left of the handle to get it to open.
I can't see any other way of doing it.

My A/C recently stopped working. I don't think its a freon issue because it seems like it happened all at once (i.e., worked fine one day then stopped blowing out cold air). I had a number of fuses that needed to replaced and thought that might be the issue. However, I haven't been able to find the appropriate fuse. The car blows air out and when the A/C button is pushed its light comes on. However, the air temperature/flow doesn't change at all. Seems like some sort of switch isn't working or something. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
