Question about Jeep Wrangler
When the vehicle goes into a turn and I have put in the normal steer on the wheel, the steering continues past and lurches causing over-steer. If you are not careful and then over compensate for the vehicles action in the first direction it will throw the vehicle in the opposite direction even harder. At speed it sets up a motion with the vehicle that almost feels like a jack-knife as when towing a trailer.
Try this, with the engine off, have someone turn the steering wheel left and right 1/4 turn while you lay on the ground in front carefully watching the movement of all the linkages and stabilizer rod. By your description, it sounds like the bar that is attached to the front differential (pass. side) to the frame mount (driver side) is shot. Observe and confirm.

sounds like the problem is in the valving in the steering box. You may have to get a new steering box. i would get it checked.

There's a chance that the ball joints need grease. This should help, however once they have started to make noise like that due to lack of grease, they usually have gone bad. Replacement may be the only remedy. Hope this helps.

steering column bearing sounds like a worn out steering column... jack the front wheels off the ground both sides relieve load on steering wheel to see if it lessens the amount of feel and noise, if it does it shoud be the column bearing, replace bearings or complete column,,, also try with the wheels off the ground and safely supported to manualy steer the wheels by hand and see if you feel in roughness or hear any noises,should some minor resistance but be smooth in it movement if everything suspension and steering component wise is in good working condition... please rate my help.. thanks...

If this is a floor shifter or center console shifter there is actually a lock release next to the shifter. Look next to the shifter handle and you should see a small square plug in the console remove the plug and you will see a little white button in it this is the shifter release push it and you can move the shifter.
