If is wet with oil or moves in and out easily it is time for a new one. A steering stabilizer should have a good bit of resistance when trying to pull it in or out.

How do I install a new steering stabilizer in a 94 jeep wrangler (pictures of a properly installed stabilizer would be helpful)

The stabilizer dampner is a straight forward remove and replace. The body of the dampner (shock) faces the passenger side and the chrome shaft end faces the driver side. All you have to do is remove the hex nuts that secure it the the steering. It's not a big job. I don't have an image or illustration at this time.

I have a 88 jeep wrangler w/a 4in. lift when accelerating the jeep will pull to one side or the other pretty bad any ideas

Yes. Don't lift it in the first place. Your lift components are not correct for your application. Your getting the pulling, because the steering linkage/arms are wrong or wrongly installed. A good 4x4 shop, which I recall stopped existing 20 years ago or a frontend specialist ,if they will even touch it, could help. As your veh lifts on acceleration,the steering is out of travel,so to speak.

Why does jeep cherokee shake like crazy when ur driving and you hit a bump

Hello there.
I have seen this happen with the Jeep Cherokee often.
This vehicle uses a steering stabilizer (like a shock absorber) mounted to the drag link off the pitman arm..
The stabilizer leaks out it's oil and allows the steering to go into a speed shake.
While you are checking that part out it would be a good idea to check your other steering components and suspension.
Thanks for using FixYa.

1996 jeep cherokee steering wheel shakes when i hit a pothole or big enough bump

Make sure your steering stabilizer is in good shape. It sounds like it is time for a replacement though. Possibly a ball joint or tie rod end problem, but most likely the stabilizer.

1995 jeep laredo suspension swap

If both vehicles are Grand Cherokee's a lot of the components will fit. Some of them are not worth putting used items on because they may already be worn out. The mounting of control arms are virtually the same. The front axle on the 2wd looks like a gutted out 4wd axle. The most common issues with that suspension is the "Trac Bar" and "Steering Stabilizer". Those usually last 60k to 90k unless you take it off-road then 30k. The trac bar is the bar that hooks from the housing over to the frame, side to side. The stabilizer looks like a shock attached to the steering linkage.
Good luck, I hope this was helpful?

I lose steering in my jeep when I hit a bump it shakes violently until I slow down then it stops

Sounds like a tie rod end is shot. If the Jeep is over five years old that's what I would check.
