At low speed have a wobbly feeling


Generally, low-speed wobbles are caused by defective tires.
Look at your tires' tread and run your hand over each tire. If you can see (or feel) the tread shift away from the normal pattern, it's likely the tire has a broken belt (most tires have a steel radial belt the wraps around the tire, which is buried underneath the tread) - occasionally they can separate from the tire, causing a terrible wobble-ley feeling. (Ever seen those strips of tread on the highway? that is the result of not having the problem fixed when first noticed).
It could also be other problems such as a loose front-end, the tire being out-of-balance, or your car wheels not being aligned properly.
If you're not comfortable checking yourself, I suggest having a mechanic or automotive technician take a look.

Front Left side wobbly and there is a squeeky noise when driving


Have you checked the tires ?
Sometimes a wobble can be a broken belt inside the tire tread.
Or it could be something loose in the hub.
You could also switch the front and rear tire to see if the wobble moves.

When driving down the road at a low speed the rear end wobbles. St higher speed it shakes.


One of your rear tires busted a steel belt in the tire. It usually causes a hump in the tire when this happens, causing the wobble

Our 89 Jeep cherokee took a shot in the passenger front tire in an accident. Now at certain speeds the front end begins to shake drastically.


First thing to check is air pressure,
Second is to have that wheel put on a spin balance machine to see if the tire's steel bend shifted,or the wheel got bent,or a weight came off.
If all those check out,Then check the steering for any loose parts,
The last is check the front alignment.
