Need some help guys.
I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Had the brakes done about a year ago, with new rotors on the front.
Now when I hit the brakes at or around 55mph I get this REALLY bad shake/shimmy in the steering wheel. But it ONLY does it at 55mph.
I just had new tires put on, so out of balance wheels isn't the answer.
Any ideas or suggestions???


Oh and nice to see this forum here too.

If you apply the brakes going faster then 55 does it start to shake when you slow down to 55?
I'd be willing to bet you have a warped rotor.



The shake is just barely noticeable when driving normally.
Yes if I'm going say 70 and I apply the brakes, as soon as it get close to 55 it starts to shake.
Under or over 55 it does nothing but in that range of 50-55 mph when brakes are applied it shakes.
I thought it may be a warped rotor but I wanted to see what other opinions may be.

Get FACTORY rotors, or be prepared to have them warp every year like yours did.

This is a known problem. There are also lots of aftermarket stronger setups out there, go to www.naxja.org they will give you the details

Yup.

A common problem with Jeeps. I saw it more on GC's than not.
