At around 50,000 miles I had a similar issue and had to replace the right bearing hub assembly. I was having a vibrating issue also, so this may not be the same issue.

Front wheel is bumpy at low speed. 4x4 stuck?

If the 4wd was engaged on dry pavement you would have a difficult time making a turn because the front tires would be turning at the same time.
If the bump or vibration is felt when you are driving down a straight road I would agree with the ball joint or other suspension theory.
I will note here that Jeep Cherokee came with two different kinds of 4wd, one version can be driven on dry roads when engaged.

How to fix death rattle? when i hit a bump in road the front wobbles

take it to an alignment shop and ask them for a list of all the front suspension components which are beyond their service life. most likely it will be all of them, and the price to replace them all will exceed the value of the car. when they get old, they get play in them which rattle and clank when you hit a bump. the fact that you have a wobble and the noise means you are close to a dangerous failure.

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. There is a "violent" vibration that occurs only when you are going 40-60 MPH and you hit a bump or pot hole on the highway. The front end begins to...

Vibration from about 40-60 mph is usually attributed to wheel balancing, but the onset when you hit a bump seems to indicate play in the steering linkages (tie rods etc) or suspension members and stabiliser bar rubbers but you had that all checked out, that brings us back to the wheel balancing.

Every time i hit a bump in the front end i feel everything and when the car gets to 30 mph it shakes left to right in the front end then up and down, what do i have to do to fix this problem?

sounds like you have got a front suspension arm lower ball joint with exsesive play.You will need to jack the front wheels off the ground 1 at a time and shake them left to right and up and down if you feel any play in the wheel then you need to replace the bottom arm.

Check your suspension bushings for wear and play. Sway bar bushings, links, track bar ends and rubber end mounts can become loose and give you problems, as can the steering damper (the sideways mounted shock on the front suspension linkage). Overall, at that mileage, everything will have some wear and becomes suspect and bears close examination. If you replaced the entire suspension system you could restore "like new" ride, but generally replacing obviously worn components will get you back to an acceptable level without draining your entire bank account..

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.
