When driving around at any speed on highway my car feels like gliding It feels like I'm going to lose control and sometimes when I brake coming down hill the front end shakes violently. then will stop

This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.

Nissan problem

This is a very typical issue on lifted vehicles being driven on the street. It is important to know that when a vehicle is lifted, the steering and suspension geometry change and characteristics will change as well.
My first concern would be with front wheel alignment. If front caster angles are too severe, the will fight each other over rough surfaces and cause the truck to wander or feel like a shake.
Also, front toe angles are crucial for proper tire wear and stability.
Have the front end aligned and checked. If there are no alignment issues, focus on the shocks and that steering stabilizer. Was the problem there before you installed the stabilizer? If not, check it for proper oil/ gas charge.
Weak or worn shocks will cause the tires to bounce and leave the road over bumps. Since the truck and been lifted, make sure the shocks are the proper length. If they are too short (even by as little as 20mm), they cause rebound problems and make the opposing side overcompensate with a bouncing effect.

Service Ride Control means one or some of your shocks or struts are worn and may need replacing. The price for new ones is not cheap,

Steering and real bad vibration in front end

That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.

1975 jeep. When driving down the road jeep will shake violantly. Only on occassion and stops after pulling over for a few minutes. Also the passenger front and back side floor gets full of water. I was...

Looks like you have a two part problem.
For the vehicle shaking, I would recommend having the front shock absorbers checked. The jeep might also require front end alignment after all that activity.
For the water problem in consideration of all water sources, I would have to ask if the water is due to the vehicle itself, or after a rain? AC condensation could be the source as you mentioned. A hole access in the firewall or floorboard on a rainy day is another thing.
Determine also, that the water isn't antifreeze... this would indicate a heater core problem.
Good luck on your investigation... hope this helps!

Uncontrollable shimmy in frontend

Haha the death wobble replace the steering dampner or shock on the lower tortion bar of the suspension with an heavy duty upgraded one. Not a difficult repair check the tortion bar bushing for play. But the death wobble is caused by the steering shock. Seen it a lot fixes it every time. Hope the info helps rate it please.

Front end and steering wheel shakes

Most common problem would be tires are out a balance. Or, the tires are out of round ( meaning the tires have a hop to it; not completely round ).
