If you know for sure that it has work u-joints,their are no ajustments on u-joints. Greese won't take out the slack or play or wear.

My 1998 Ford Explorer starts shaking when I'm driving and its very random

Have the front control arm bushings replaced and check the ball joints for excessive wear as well as the tie rod ends, the problem lies there. Also check for a cracked frame.

My 97 4wd explorer shakes and makes a clunking noise when I get above 50 mph I've replaced both front wheel bearings and did fine for about a month then started shaking and grabing on the driver side only....

It is usually the CV joints in the drive shaft(s) that are worn, and make this noise.
I would look at your CV joint boots, are they dirty and full of grease on the outside. Does the inner wheel well have grease slung onto it ?
Replacing the drive shaft is a difficult repair. I would have a reliable auto repair center give an estimate.
Please let me know what you find.

I have a 99 tahoe 4X4 4 dr. that has a drive line clunking problem when I start and stop, seems to be coming from rear of vehicle and getting worse........HELP Please...

It may be a u-joint, check that.If the driveshaft moves back and forth due to worn u-joints, replace both of them. Also the splines going into transmission on driveshaft tend to form a groove causing it to 'clank' upon starting/stopping. Chevy offers a nickel-plated yoke to replace the offending part. Do not plate yours as it will not fit after. If you don't replace it, you can grease it and the problem will go away for a while till the grease wears thin and the noise returns. If that's the case it's a very common problem you can find it and the solution easily all over the internet. I suspect it will be u-joints or notched yoke. Lastly, it may be a rear-end that needs the lash adjusted. On my truck the sound is a clank that doesn't sound horrible just annoying and a little worrisome till I knew what it was. The GM clank baby, been around for years. If it is u-joints you'd be getting vibration at speed that gets worse and worse till it's unbearable.

Left front suspension squeaking badly on 2000 Ford Explorer XLS. Is there a grease point for the A arms or do I need new struts/shocks?

If the boots are ripped on your lower ball joints you will need to replace them, rain water has washed away the factory lubricant they have no grease fitting from the factory. Replacements will come with grease fittings. Tie rod ends can also be the source of the noise, same deal no factory fittings. VERY COMMON PROBLEM.

Creaking Noise in Front Axel when going over speed bumps/dips in road

My grandfather has a 97 Ford Crown Vic that used to do the same thing. He had the front end greased when he got an oil change and that solved the problem. So thats probably all you need.
