My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited had “wandering” problems. It has 250,000 miles with only the usual repairs. All joints and linkage on front are good, steering box and pump are good. Just had the alignment checked.
The problem turned out to be worn out bushings on the REAR stabilizer. Replaced them and it drives like new again!

kolac may be his buddy. but for 220 bucks I bougnht a track bar stabilizer bar 4 tie rods 4 sway bars and shocks on ebay as a whole kit. free shipping. although I could have replaced everything I only replaced half the parts.. keep in mind firestone and goodyear lie to you. they will say you have bad tie rods then try and sell you one for 200.00 that's about 160.00 labor for 20 minutes. they told me mine were bad . I bought all these parts and the tie rods were perfect. my mechanic went over them with a fine tooth comb. also the stabilizer bar track bar and shocks cost me 80.00 labor.. shop around

Old thread = old. But thanks for posting your experience.

Also Kolak sells quality parts. Which aren't always the cheapest. Who knows maybe he will sell you crappy eBay white shocks if you ask for them though.

Well other than it not being a V6, not being a truck, and not being in the right forum, you've come to the right place.

This thread is from when the WJ (1999-2004) grand cherokee and ZJ (1993-1998) grand cherokees shared a forum. The WJ forum has since been moved here:

The steering systems are quite different so you will have better luck posting in that forum. Have you had the alignment checked? Which direction is it pulling? Have you checked the brakes to rule out a sticking caliper?
