What you have is called "death wobble" Most common causes include: steering box starting to tear away from the chassis, worn track bar mount tabs on differential or worn tb bushings, worn ball joints. This said, it can also be caused by improperly installed wheels (wrong tightening pattern and improper torque), or a combination of small amounts of wear in several pivot points or front end bushings. It is not related to the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on suspension) That part is often blamed. Wobble can and will damage it and indeed it may need replacement but only changing that will be a short term fix and the problem will be back in a week or less.
In extreme cases, front end caster angle can be moved slightly more positive but care must be taken that pinion angle is not altered too much.

Jeep 98 4 cylinders, shakes when on 50milesan hr.


This problem is know as the death wobble. There is no one answer that will fix it. This is a well known problem among jeepers. Do a google search on death wobble and you will find a lot of help, but like I said there is no single answer. If your jeep is lifted, you need to find a really good alignment shop that has experience with lifted jeeps.

1996 Jeep Laredo shakes between 55 and 65mph


You might take a close look at the ball joints on the front suspension/steering arms. I've had the same problem on another vehicle. Also you should check the front wheel bearings for loose play.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Vibration at highway speeds


That kind of vibration generally can be associated with a binding universal joint. Sometimes you can see a bit of rust around the seals, sometimes not. The "shake" test is generally valid only with vehicle off the ground and trans in neutral, but sometimes the bearings are fused with rust and do not move.If "eyeball" inspection reveals nothing , remove the driveshaft (s) and physically move joints. If overly loose or binding they are bad. If after complete inspection you still come up with nothing then it's time to look at other "oddball" things.
good luck
