Your stabilizer has nothing to do with the alignment. All it does is help to keep your vehicle from having too much "bump steer". Check your tire's air pressure, and also to see if the tread is badly or unevenly worn. Make sure you don't have a brake pad sticking (passenger side). All of these things, and more, can cause bad alignment, But these are the easiest to check and repair. Your track bar wouldn't have alot to do with it either. All it does is keep your axle centered from side to side under the vehicle. No offense, but next time use the spell checker so we can more clearly understand what the problem is that you're having. Let us know if that doesn't solve your problem! Thanks.
#2717 of 5142 More JGC brake problems
Mar 14, 2006 (1:05 pm)
Help! I have owned an 03' JGC for 2-1/2 years now and this will be the 4th time it has been in for the brakes. They are grabbing once again and I have an appointment for Friday with the dealership. The service consultant told me it sounded like the rotors were warped again...suprise! He said they could replace them if I wanted to pay for the parts ($100 per rotor) and they will cover the labor. Can anyone direct me to a TSB that might cover this? I'm tired of taking the Jeep in every 6 months for brake problems. I guess it's time to trade her in for a Ford.

I wanted to know if you ever found out what the problem was with your 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stalling. I have a 97 and it has been doing the same thing. So if you found out what the problem was please let me know.

These problems were supposed to have been corrected by the new design in 2002. Here is a TSB on those http://www.wjjeeps.com/tsb_list.htm#0500302b
FWIW, I had a 2000 GCL. I ended up replacing the rotors myself with aftermarket ones from AutoZone...list on them was less than $100 for the pair. If this is the 4th time to have the issue, I would contact D/C and demand that they cover everything because of re-occuring issues. Make it clear to the service manager at the dealer that if they do not go to bat for you, that the survey you get from D/C will reflect that by their low rating. (They did not stand up for me and got a low rating plus lost D/C a customer forever.)
Have your docs (they should really already have access to that in their computer) on the previous brake problems. Explain to him nicely the timeline and repeated issues and ask nicely that they assist with having D/C cover the complete repair (dealership has a warranty rep that should be able to handle). If they don't, contact D/C directly. If they still don't replace the rotors with aftermarket and make know to the dealership and D/C your displeasure.
Good luck, you may need it.

Welcome to Edmunds - you're in the right discussion. People tend to skip over posts in ALL CAPS since they can be hard to read, so keep that in mind as you post.
You may want to skim the Transmission Traumas? discussion while waiting for responses in here.
#2724 of 5142 '99 JGC still overheating
Mar 15, 2006 (5:47 pm)
replaced relay twice and only temporarily fixed the problem. Replaced Coolant Temp Sensor and Electric fan and fixed the overheating. Driving slow with A/C on last summer sent the gauge back up. Help! Where do I go from here??? Wire shorting out?
