JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE STEERING PROBLEM

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee • 170,000 miles

5.2l awd when driving at speeds of about 55mph+ it feels like it pulls all of a sudden to one side or the other. Then its hard to control. Sometimes it sounds like the front tires are squealing. Allmost like the front tires are out of sinc. Allignment, steering box, half shafts, traction bar are all good. Thanks

Have you checked all steering components including tie rods? Tracking bar? Pitman arm? Ball joints? It sounds like there is excessive play in one of them if you are hearing tire noise.

Thanks yea they are good. The steering is tight, but on the highway it kinda feels like it grabs/pulls. Another guy tought it might be a rear track bar
