Vibration and banging noise in front end right in fornt of center console on the floor board I think its the u joints? But I have to get two guys to believe me on this. The banging noise is only when...

Sounds like U-joint. Also check front driveline shaft on 4x4, sympathetic motion can sometimes turn shaft when not in 4x4 mode.

With play in U-joint, joint slips to one side as Torque pushes against flange to turn driveshaft. Basically U-joint is cocked and shaft is not running true to center plane.

Also worth checking are front c-v joints if 4x4 vehicle. Pretty much the same problem can exist with these small joints as with the big joints on your driveshaft.

The last areas are the motor mounts and transmission mounts. These can cause the same problems you describe. And remember that sound transmits differently through metal.

Front brake's either slow to retract, worn or loose. Its a front brake problem so better to get them checked.

1999 Chevy Blazer makes noise

Check your driveshaft universal joint (u joint). When the needle bearings go, this is the sound it makes. To check, chock all wheels front and rear, put in neutral, if 4x4, put 4x4 in neutral also, go under vehicle, grab driveshaft at u joint and try to turn back and forth, watching for play, wobble in u joint. U should be able to see it. Let me know how u do.

Jumping 4x4

No it isn't normal. It sounds as if it could be worn constant velocity joints (the flexible joints between the drive shafts and the front wheels).

Are the 'jumps or tweaks' accompanied by a knocking sound? This is a classic symptom of worn CV joints.
