Vibration when driving seem to go away at higher speeds

Sorry for the vague description but my jeep seems to vibrate at around town speeds. At first I thought it was just running crappy bc it was due for a spark plug change and oil change. After changing both I notice it get worse when I turn the car to the left. Diff fluid is due for a change in about 2000 miles but would that affect just one side. Or is it more likely a wheel bearing. Also it seems worse driving around town below 30mph. Just trying to narrow down the problem before investing money in parts

It only happens when I'm turning out of some where very briefly. It feels like it's in the front. I do have 125k on it.

Re: Vibration when driving seem to go away at higher speeds

2wd or 4wd?
Could be wheel bearing or joint in one of the front axles.
Could be badly cupped tires. How are the fronts wearing? Evenly all the way across? Feel no dipping when you run your hands along them?

Vibrate or shimmy? Can you hear a noise? Like wawawawa?

Input. This unit needs input. Insufficient data. Hard driiiiiivvvv.......crash.

Re: Vibration when driving seem to go away at higher speeds

Doing it worse while turning left has me leaning toward right wheel bearing. Get someone to lean out the windows while you turn and try to pinpoint the location. Wawawawa is a rotational noise like bearings, universal joints, or aggressive mud tires. You probably don't have mud tires but if you've ever heard a set overdue for rotation you know what I'm talking about.

If you maintain a constant slow speed then turn left, if the sound slows down it's left side, if the sound speeds up while turning left the problem is on the right.

Heavy vibrations on start after it sits a couple of hour when I turn. Slight vibration turning left or right when when I'm driving around No vibrations going straight.

Damn I completely missed where you said if it get worst while turning left it's the right side. And I just changed the left side 😖. Onto the right side now
