Bouncing Betty (Jeep)

Got a 2000 Jeep. Love it! Can use it on my dolly. It's got a problem though. Rides and handles pretty well. Except when You need to use the brakes. Then the left front wheel seems to bounce pretty badly. I just replaced the shocks last night and that greatly reduced the problem. But, it's still there to a lesser extent. Anyone have another idea to stop this problem?

thanks, Ed

I had a similar problem with our Kia. I put new pads and rotors on and it developed a vibration when applying the brakes. I found out I had bad wheel bearings on both sides. Replaced both wheel bearings, problem solved. Could also be a bad rotor too.

If that jeep is 4wd, towing on a dolly will take out the tranfer case pretty quickly. They need to be towed 4 down.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Replaced the rotors and new pads already. It's probably going to be bearings. I just hoped someone had other ideas, too.

thanks for the tip about towing four-down.

Check the ABS sensor if the Jeep has them. They can become mud covered and not function correctly.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
