Customer Question
I have a Jeep...

I have a Jeep SRT 8, 2006 never had a problem , but now have shudder and vibration , whilst driving , particularly when going up hill , seems to be from the back of the car .

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '06 Jeep?

Grand Cherokee SRT 8 , 2006 year 122,000 miles , right hand drive .

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took it to Jeep dealership in Chelmsford, Essex , they charged me £ 100 to say there`s no problem and then when we went for a test drive , said the noise was there and they had no idea why , could be rear u joint

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No , its standard car , no modifications , not raced or track days .

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that you could be feeling. It sounds as if it's throttle sensitive, which makes it likely to be a U joint or driveshaft issue. The U joints were serviced with the driveshaft assembly.

Does the vibration begin or get worse on acceleration, and lessens drastically or go away when decelerating?

The other noticeable thing it feels like the car is labouring up an incline or juddering and then when you accelerate above 50 ish is goes , not aware of it on slowing down .
