Check spark plugs.
with the engine running (idle)
disconnect one spark plug cable,
see if your engine goes at lower speed or notice engine speed variation.
if it does, the spark plug is OK. it no change, the spark plug is bad.
reconnect the first one then disconnect the next plug.
do this untill at the last spark plug connection.

Code for misfire cyl 4. replaced wires, plugs, distributor cap and rotor. at speed of 40 mph check engine light flashes and when decelerate at times will flash also.

When your check engine light flashes, it means there is a serious problem. When you tested the code, is that when you got the misfire code?

Nissan Frontier 02 ABS LIGHT AND BAD SHAKE ON HIGHWAY Wheels are all balanced, brakes, rotors are replaced now. It will be running smooth on highway, but at varying times, highway speeds, it will start...

i would start with checking the axles because most of them have a abs ring on them which will trigger the abs light. also make sure your axles are in good shape. last resort would be that you need new tires because the steel bands inside are starting to seperate. good luck
