Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
Have a shop check the caster of the front axle. If the caster is out by even a few degrees, the "death wobble" can happen.

I had exactly the same problems. It is called the "Death Wobble" and normally affects Jeep Wranglers that are lifted. But mine is a 1999 Cherokee stock (4x4). As it turns out, my 99, with 150,000 miles had the original shocks which, by doing the "bounce" test, etc. Seemed to function fine. Once removed, however, the mechanic showed me that none of them actually functioned and would not even extend without help. The springs had been doing everything. Once I replaced all five shocks (stabilizer included), the problem disappeard.
