#116 of 302 Front End Suspension Creaking noise
Nov 04, 2007 (7:09 pm)
Hey, I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I have been noticing a loud creaking noise in the front end I believe it is suspension related. The noise is only noticeable when it is below 49 degrees. The noise occurs when you go over bumps and right after the suspension is compressed and is recoiling. If you have experienced this or think you may know what it is please let me know. Also if you know of any cheap quick fixes let me know. Thank you

#122 of 302 Synthetic or regular oil?
Nov 08, 2007 (8:02 pm)
I have about 1000 miles to go till my first oil change on my 2000 Jeep Sport I bought last month.
I'm thinking of replacing all fluids while I'm at it. How does one determine if the fluids in any of the axles,tranny, T/C, oil pan is synthetic or regular oil.
There are no records that came with the Jeep for any maintenance schedule or type of fluid used, Just thought I asked.

..Just got new tires at les Schwab. They balanced them...we went 550 miles...they did an alignment and balanced them again. Started shaking just over 60 mph. We went back to them. One guy overheard the conversation and said let me handle it. Seems the tires fit over a plastic cone that has to be balanced differently. They did it...we just came back from a 450 mi trip.........and no more shaking. Solved our problem for now anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions. I replaced the track bar, but the wobble came back. The rubber bushing at the frame end of the bar is defective. I now have a second track bar to put on but I forgot the torque specs at each end. Do any of you know the specs for a 1987 with a 4.0 engine?
#125 of 302 88 Cherokee Laredo 3" Lift SHakes Violently
Nov 19, 2007 (11:05 am)
I have an 88' Cherokee Laredo with a 3" lift and this thing shakes so violently when I hit a bump(any Kind of drop abrasion in the ground no matter how insignificant) at about 35-45 miles an hour. It shimmies so violently I have to bring the car to an complete stop for it to stop if I am driving on a smooth street no problem doesnt happen. Already replaced Traction Bar and Stabilizing shock. Problem still there I was told I need New bushings but I dont see needing new bushings causing this problem. Also was told by a friend my ball joints and tie rod ends look bad. Any Ideas on what might fix this problem I am having.
