Rear end has wobble and vibration, there is a clunking sound when i put it in gear

Check your driveshaft joints for excessive play. If it's bad enough to clunk into gear, usually if you have someone watch from the side underneath you can see the one that is worn when you go from drive to reverse. (do not lay in the path of the wheels when doing that ) Another way of checking is with both rear wheels safely supported (on flat ground) and the trans in neutral to unload the driveline...then try to move the driveshaft by hand. When replacing the bad joint, check the opposite end as well for any binding or play.

1996 jeep cherokee sport shakes badly over 40mph

Front end need to be checked. checked shocks and stabilizer links.
check damper shock.
Check the tie rods. They had come loose, causing the wheels have excessive play and vibrate. Be aware that they will not balance tires or give a front end alignment if the tie rods are the culprit. They must be replaced first, otherwise the alignment will only hold until the first time you turn the wheel...which could be 5 seconds after you get in the car. Good luck.

Body vibrations from 60Km/hr to 120 Km/Hr

Are the tires balanced? Did they use stick on weights, if so? If this holds true, see if there is a mark on the wheel, where a weight has flown off.

How about the front end alignment, and condition of the tires. Sometimes a belt slips in the tire. This is hard to see, but can be found by sliding your hand around the tire, and you will feel a bulge to one side. (Use caution, as there's no telling what may be stuck in your tire/s, and you can damage your hand or fingers. I realize how that sounds. One has to use finesse, when checking one's tires, with this method)

The front end of my Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a clunking noise when you drive it can you help

Clunking noise can be caused by any item in the steering, suspension or driveline. You are going to have to get under there and start checking things. anything with excessive play, showing rust from a joint boot etc. is suspect. I could write out a list and the one Item I forgot to put on there would be the item that's bad. If you can isolate the problem and need help removing it, I'm here to help!
Good luck
