04 & 99 WJ questions...

04 4.0 Laredo first...180k everything is tight and I have kept up on maintenance etc.
Heres what its doing...driving down why at 60-70 mph and let off gas and tap the throttle, read feels loose. Its swaying back n forth. Take off hard etc, no sway. I checked the trailing arms and the upper wishbone and everything checks out ok. Driveshaft isn't lose. Front end is tight. I just replace the steering joints last month. New tranny mount and the motor mounts check out ok. This rear sway has been going on for 2 months now, I can not figure this out! arghhhh

Now for the 99...4.7v8 Wont start, POURING out water through the exhaust. With the radiator cap off, it will shoot water out while cranking. No water in the oil.
Cranks, doesn't fire. While cranking, I hear a major squeak coming from the upper intake area. Any ideas?

Is it possible that you have a blowout somewhere on the head gasket that's allowing water out the exhaust and pressure from the combustion chamber into the cooling system, yet the piston rings are still tight enough to apparently keep water from making its way into the lower engine.

I cannot imagine any other way that water would "pour" from the exhaust and "shoot" from the radiator while cranking without starting.
