Usually when the CV joint boot fails, the grease is slinged all over, and after awhile, dirt gets in, and you start to get clicking noises, especially during turns. Sometimes a mechanic can clean and relube the joint, and install a replacement boot, but often the axle assembly is a more economical option.

In sharp turns, right or left, front end shinmies/shakes. Is this a trnsfer case problem..? Have a 2000 Grand Cherokee with Quadra-Trac

I don't remember what the cut-off year was when Jeep changed from standard universal joints to C/V joints but your problem sounds a lot like a bad end joint on a front axle shaft. "U" joints are "X" type...CV's have a rubber boot covering them. If the boot is torn that also could cause the CV to fail but unless they are really bad generally they get real noisy first before they get to the point of binding.
Only way your transfer case could be doing that is if you have different size tires in the front or rear.
Usually a bad transfer case will make the whole vehicle shudder, even going straight.
If you have X type joints, don't go by how they look... you need to remove them to see if they are binding.

How to replace a cv joint on a 2000 grand cherokee 4.7

Hereafter is a roughly described procedure:

Jack the vehicule and secure it with stand
Remove the wheel
Unbolt/remove brake assembly (do not let caliper suspended by the hydraulic hose - hang it to the coil spring or somewhere else)
Disconnect ABS wire connector
Remove the axle nut and washer from the CV shaft
Unbolt bearing hub assembly from the back (3 bolts)
Separate the bearing assembly from where it seated. Probably it will be seized by the rust. Tap gently on it with an hammer. If it's not sufficient, use an appropriate chisel to separate in the joint.
Remove the hub bearing
Remove the CV from its housing
Clean and prepare the bearing hub seating surface for reinstallation (apply antiseize grease on sitting surfaces)
Check/verify if you have the right replacement part (buy a new complete assembly do not try to recondition it by yourself)
Put some grease at the extremity of the CV where it goes in the differential.
Insert gently the new CV assembly (before make sure it's clean -no grease, oil and dirty)
Make sure it reached it's original position (play with it turning slowly until it seats properly)
Put some grease on the CV axle splines to help the insertion. Do the same thing on the internal bearing spline
Put back in place the bearing hub assembly
Reverse the steps to reinstall.

As I said, this is a rough procedure assuming you have the appropriate tools and basic experience.
If it's not for you, have the job done by somebody else.
I could provide you torque specifications on request if you make the decision to do it yourself.
Hope it will help
Sorry for my english

Whining/grinding noise at deceleration

We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.
