I am slowly restoring a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with 97K miles to use as a winter/light towing vehicle.
I had some sag in my coil springs and leaf springs and the shocks were shot. So I had my garage replace everything. I got the HD Coil/Leaf springs from Quadratec.com, since I heard good things about them.
I've been driving a few weeks and I seem to be feeling some vibrations:
- At idle - very slight vibration
- Reverse - vibrations seem to be coming from the front.
- In drive, between 35-40MPH
- vibrations seem to be less in 4x4 mode.
Had the transmission mount replaced as it was shot. Improved #1.
Guy at the main garage also checked my U-Joints and Drive shafts, said they were OK. He also said it may be vibration because my springs added a slight amount of lift (and based on the Internet, the springs I got may provide a 1"-1.5" lift above stock).
Another solution I read is to get a transfer case spacer and drop that an 1". My Transmission guy said that "he doesn't know how to do this" but it seems rather simple from watching youtube videos.
Would dropping the TC and/or replacing the engine mounts help me or should I look elsewhere?
