Loose/Worn Suspension/Steering Components May Cause Wobble in Steering Wheel on Jeep Grand Cherokee

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.

when I get up to about 50 mph or slowing down the jeep shakes real bad like the tire about to fall off.
allot of play in steering wheel.
Hi, i have this problem and was wondering how much it would cost to fix. It feels like the whole car is wobbeling.
My jeep has a lift kit (2in) it has a death wobble now. I have been told it will cost me thousands to fix. it sits in my driveway, can't drive it and do not have thousands to fix it. I have replaced all tie rods upper and lower, this did not solve the problem. I was told to put back to original susp. or lift by pros. I bought it this way, not knowing anything about lift kits. buyer beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am out $10,000 + on this vehicle and can't fix or drive it.
