Most brake calipers have shims that sit between the pads and the calipers them selves that brace the pads and keep them from vibrating against the caliper. If your shims are gone that might account for the squealing. You can also address this problem by putting high temperature silicon lubricant on the pad backing plate wherever it touches the caliper.
have your brakes checked
A 1998 Jeep Cherokee has disc brakes in the front.
A 2000 Jeep Cherokee would have rear drum brakes.
The grand Cherokee does have four wheel disc brakes. The wrangler and Cherokee have rear drum brakes.
There may be damage or misalignment in the front brakes if this is where the sound is coming from. If it is from more generally under the hood, this can be the power steering.
For the brakes, check for warped rotors. For the turning, check for worn CV joints.
My '96 Cherokee Sport does, so I bet a '98 does.
no. the jeep cherokee and the jeep cherokee sport have the same ingane and the same brakes they are essentially identical.
Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes will last a different amount depending on how far you drive the car and how hard you are on the brakes. They can easily go 5000 to 6000 miles before needing changed.
you can get the whole package on ebay for under $200.....Callahan Brakes and rotors.. Just type in 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo brakes in the search on eBay
When they've lost their brakes...
More info: 87 Crown Victoria 5.0 engine The sound is coming from the drivers side wheel vicinity and can be heard better when the window is rolled up (less outside noise to drown it out?) It does not occur when standing still. The sound is cyclical according to how fast I am going. It squeals faster as the car speeds up and like wise slows down when I do. It is not likely the brakes as it is not a high pitched whine like the brakes and makes the sound when not braking. It was faint a few days ago but is steadily getting louder.
lightly tap your brakes
There are disc brakes front and back on the Cherokee. EDIT: Cherokees (XJ) have Drum Brakes in the back. Disc in the front i don't know if you were referring to the new Grand Cherokees .. Those have All Disc. Hope it helps. (i own a 88 Cherokee XJ)
You have to measure the inside diameter of the drum.
I have a 1997 JEEP CHEROKEE sport 4.0. How to wiring for a heavy duty trailer brake switch ?
before he needs to stop
The drivers side of what? The tires? The brakes? The engine? Please be more specific.
No two drivers are the same. It depends on the drivers braking habits.
you might need a new belt I've got a old jeep that needs one and it squeals when you get up into higher rpms
Your 1997 Saturn rear brakes are equipped with adjustment screws. Turning the adjustment screw will adjust the brakes. The brakes should adjust themselves automatically every time you back up and hit the brakes.
No. Air brakes alone do NOT require a CDL. Added: Calif DOT requires an endorsment on your drivers license to drive a vehicle with air brakes
On the axles, just before the hub and brakes.
If your car makes a squealing sound when you are turning it is because your brakes have worn out. When the brakes wear down below a certain point, a wire pops loose. That makes a squeaking sound.
