Re: steering wheel vibration - TSB 6-11-14

Just called a local tire shop to find out how much they charge for a road force balance. Does $30 per tire seem ok?

Re: steering wheel vibration - TSB 6-11-14

In Brooklyn and using one of the best balancing machines I paid $15 a tire. $30 is too expensive IMO.

Re: steering wheel vibration - TSB 6-11-14

There are two differnet tsb's available at the dealer for this complaint. One refers to doing an alignment, and one refers to changing both front wheel hubs. What you have to pay attention to is making sure that your particular jeep falls within the manufacturing build date for the tsb to apply.

I have an appointment with my dealer on 9/4 for the brake booster recall and TSB for the steering wheel shimmy. When they performed the TSB which eliminated your shimmy, was that all they did at that time or did they also do an alignment and/or tire rotation? Also, its been one month, is shimmy still gone?

So I dropped off my Jeep earlier today at my dealership. Tomorrow they are doing the brake booster recall and the TSB for the steering wheel shimmy, which is replacing the front wheel\hub assembly. Will let you know how it turns out. They gave me a decent loaner, a 2014 Cherokee Sport.

Re: steering wheel vibration - TSB 6-11-14

Well I spoke with SRT hotline and complained. They said they would approve the TSB and told me to go to a different dealer. I just had my 22s installed yesterday and I still have the shimmy so I know it's legitimate. Now I need to find time to get it to them.
