I still think that you need to look at the frt drive shaft assembly, i am not saying that you may still have a front diff problem but the problem that you are stating happens only when you have all four wheel locked in correct. pulling the frt diff cover is simple, you will be able to check the fluid condation and do visual inspection, but do not forget the transfer case and frt drive shaft trun the frt diff good luck

I hav a 99 chevy tahoa LT. 4+4, 5.7. when on hiway sometimes when im going down hill and off of the gas it makes a loud noise. i step back on the gas and it goes away. sounds like its comin from the trans.

Check the front universal joint. These don't have grease fittings and tend to fail
Put vehicle in park and check drive shaft for excessive movement by rotating it
by hand. If you feel any play at all it may have failed. Hope this helps.

My 99 jeep cherokee shakes in front end around 60mph

You didn't supply a lot of info but generally a consistent shake at a particular speed is caused by wheel balance being off. Before having the balance checked look at the wheels inside and outside. Many times you can get either mud or ice packed in that will disturb the balance.
If balance is good, then you need to have the front end components checked for wear. If the shaking is very violent, it may be what's known as "death wobble" which can stem from excessive wear of components, usually either ball joints or track bar but everything's suspect. If you have that you can't mistake it as the steering wheel feels like it is trying to rip right out of your hands!!!.

I was driving my 99 Grand Cherokee limited in 4Lo then it just popped out of 4Lo into neutral and will not re engage! When i put it into 4Lo it just revs and grinds when i step on the gas and truck wont...

Try putting the truck into reverse before going into neutral, then put it into 4-lo. Sounds like the transfer case linkage might need to be adjusted, nothing major. I've owned NUMEROUS Jeeps, and every one with an auto tranny was a PITA to get into 4-lo. And if it isn't engaged completely, it will pop out every time.

When I drive over 40 mph it pulls to the right, then to the back

You are going to have to do some looking to find this.
Check that the wheels turn freely when off the ground. any binding can indicate a brake staying applied. (usually an internally failed brake hose (not line) This is often mis-diagnosed as a bad caliper. Sometimes you can see a "blue" rotor on the one that's hanging up, or feel an excessive amount of heat from that wheel right after this happens.
Yes, check suspension parts and bearings but usually they will cause problems at all speeds, and cause "clunking" noises stopping, starting off and in turns.

I need to find out if I need to activate the 4 wheel drive for snow driving on the freeway. I have a 1986 Grand Cherokee. V8 5.2, with abs. There is a lever for lo/hi but I think that is used only for...

That is up to your preference in my opinion. 4 wheel may give you a little more traction, but it can also lead you into a false sense of security. If heavy snow, and you need to get through it, you can only go as fast as the guy ahead of you anyway right? Up here in Ontario Canada, I passed by many a 4 wheel drive in the ditch, because they assumed they would have a better chance on icy roads than me, with 2 wheel drive. Remember this, no matter what you decide, you may be able to go a little faster in 4 wheel, compared to 2 wheel, but when you have to hit the brakes, or go into a spin, 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, your not going to be able to stop it any faster. Your going to use more gas in 4 wheel too. Yes there will be times when you need to use it, but like I said, when it goes sideways or you have to lock up the brakes, because you were pushing the envelope too much,? At least with 2 wheel, you feel the back end break loose, to warn you how slippery it is, and you may not feel that soon enough, with 4 wheel. Just my opinion, but maybe some 4 wheelers have a different opinion. It's just like the experts from the skid school said up here about mandatory snow tires being talked about. If putting snow tires on your car is going to make you drive a little faster, your defeating the purpose.
