Another Death Wobble Story
So I am Very mechanically inclined but even this jeep DW stumps me ... i have over 7 jeeps mostly j10 j10 cherokee etc but respect a nice car when i see it

Anyways on with the problem so 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2WD 4.0L
never had done this before i got it and a couple months in it starts barely anything at all or once in a while to hitting a certain speed within a 1/4 mile and almost being shook up and down to the point of loseing control everyday witch im not going to drive like this ,
I Have a stock height and stock parts , no one has even replaced shocks. , So no joints , bushings ,wheel hubs ,Track bar , or wheels and tires have shown signs at all

Ive Replaced Track Bar ,
Steering Stabilizer ,
a couple of ball joints
Tires and wheels Changed
Sway bar Links
Tow in and Out have been set for less than 1/8 in inward tow

My conclusion is that once something wears out i causes another thing in the frontend to go bad also and so on and so on in a sequence im supposing

any help would be appreciated

Check the mounting bracket for the track bar on the driver's side. It bolts to the frame and the bolts get loose. Also, look inside your driver's side front wheel well. See those nuts near the coil spring? Tighten them.

Make sure the steering box is tight, but dont overdo it.

If still no luck, get under there with a flashlight. Get a trusted friend to sit in the driver's seat, start the engine and slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth while you shine the light at every joint you see. You'll probably see some slop, somewhere. Something is slightly moving that isnt supposed to be moving at all.

If the bushings on the control arms are bad, this can also contribute to the problem.
