    Ive got a bad vibration on my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I put on 4 new tires yesterday because they were needed, and i was hoping that i had a busted belt or something. But the new tires didnt help. Do any of you guys have an idea of what the problem could be?

    The vibration is in the front of the jeep. Feels like the right side

    I'm not a mechanic by no means, but I'm going to say the TIE RODS!! Best advice I can give you is to take it to the shop or find someone who is skilled in the field.

    Wheel bearings can cause problems. Years ago when all we had were drum brakes, if the bearings went bad you knew it, as the whole tire, brake drum and all would come off. Nowdays disk brakes won't let that happen. Jack up your front end and see if your wheels will wobble.

    Check out the drive train. Could be in the universal joints.

    Wheel bearings can cause problems as well as warped rotors, just a thought

    Is it a humming vibration? Like running over the little wake up indicaters on the side of the road just not as bad. If so its a bad wheel bearing. Good luck my friend

    Thanks for the help everyone. Took it to a friends garage after doing some fishing this morning and it was a bad wheel bearing in the front right. Easy fix
