I have a 94 grand Cherokee limited that I just got on the road. It has the 5.2 v8, over 200,000 miles and was sitting for maybe over a year(s) before I got it going. Passed smog first try. It has the quadratech system (4full time). The previous owner said it eats thru tires, but he bought used tires and probably never rotated. When I was driving it to heat up the cat before smog everything seemed fine. Then at a slow pace trying to make a tight turn, or even just a turn The tires would jerk, make popping sounds, the back wheels would visibly jerk in or out a tiny bit. It felt like being in four low on dry pavement. After I got it smoged I bought a set of tires, knowing the problem could highly be related to having mismatched tires. With the new tires the problem is still their, but not as bad. It seems to only be with the back wheels. Before the new tires it seemed all four were an issue. Its also only after the tires have warmed up by driving hwy speeds for a while does it start to happen. I jacked up the front tires, spun them by hand, and tested for the wheel bearing to be shot. They seemed fine. Jacked up the rear tires, the rotation seemed ok, but when I pushed and pulled from top/bottom of tire I could get the slightest movement, I'm talking like 1/16-maybe to an 1/8th of an inch. If that. Couldn't really see the movement, but could feel it. I've read on old threads that it could be the VC in the t-case, that I just need some anti slip oil from dealership, my friend says to put in a t case and front end from an xj cuz its better anyway. I'm out of funds, want to keep this zj stock as a DD for my pregnant wife therefore safe as can be. If it is the VC can I drive it avoiding tight turns much as possible without creating serious damage to the jeep? Is it dangerous to drive? Should I replace back wheel bearings? (don't think they're the issue) my smog tech is a keeper and he noticed it right away, said I just need a anti slip fluid, till he noticed the bad mismatched tires and blamed that. Problem is still their after new tires. Can you really change the VC without dropping the t case? I'm going to start simple and check fluids in pumpkins and t case. Just got the tires yesterday, but I want this jeep safe as possible. Other minor issues I know it has ill figure when this is solved. I know there not related. Thanks to all who took the time to read this, double thanks if you respond. Its my first zj. More familiar with my renix.

You posted and expected a response in 2 hrs. It's labor day. People aren't up and about on Cherokee forum. And someone did answer you on your original thread.

The issue with starting s thread in the wrong section, you're going to get wrong answers by people guessing because they don't have a ZJ. Be patient, people will respond to your other thread

Your absolutely right. My up most apologies for being impatient and inconsiderate, and going about it wrong. Won't happen again.
