My stock Cherokee reasently started making a new and disterbing sound Sad
This sound is a slight knocking sound that accour while turning. The knockings freqwancy is paralell to the speed of witch the front wheels are turning.
I also experianced some violent vibrations while driving on the higway the other day! It was so bad that i had to pull of onto the sholder of the road, and dive slowly to the nearest exit.

I'm hoping you Jeep experts might have some idé what is going on with my beloved Jeep!
Pleace help me!

PS: sorry about my wrighting, I'm Norwegian..

Turn your wheel's, jack up one side at a time and spin the tire. Listen for the noise and check your u-joints. Also rock the tire top to bottom and side to side to see if a hub bearing our ball joint is worn.

Took it in to have it fixed. It wound up with a bad stablizer shock and my front tires went out of balance. Had the stablizer shock replaced, had the tires balanced and rotated. Seemed to do the trick.
