It is a 97' XJ, factory 1" lift, 30" tires, new ball joints, bearings and steering stabilizer. Never taken on true "offroad trails" and is a daily driver.
About two months ago I started getting this sensation while driving, it came out of now where and has been constant since. On slow speed gentle and sharp turns the steering wheel will jerk/buck while holding the wheel constant throughout the turn. When the speed is increased the jerking/bucking reduces but it is still noticeable. It similar to a rod riding on a cam, increasing then reducing ... if that makes any sense.
Things already tried:
Had my mechanic put the truck up on the lift and put it in drive while in 2WD. The front tires did not rotate. He then put it into 4WD and the front wheels did rotate but stopped when back in 2WD.
Ever since I replaced my rotors, pads and calipers my front drivers wheel will squeak, getting faster as my speed increase but will stop as soon as I hit the brakes. I am assuming it is a warped rotor but am not sure and since I am hitting you all up already figured I would throw this out there too.
I appreciate any help and a case of beer for anyone that solves the steering wheel jerk issue!
