First thing you need to do there is check all the vacuum lines to make sure all are attached and not cracked or broken. As far as sensors, most are on the intake manifold except the o2 on the exhaust and the temp sensor on the upper coolant inlet on the engine. What you want to do is have a parts house do a scan (most larger outlets do free scans) and buy a chilton or haynes manual to decipher the results. Manual will also give instructions on individual tests for sensors etc and instructions for R&R.
It is also a good idea to check all your spark plugs. Any that are severely worn, oil or fuel fouled etc can give you an idea about what's causing the shaking. Also check the distributor cap, rotor and wires. Old ones can cause mis or cross firing between cylinders. While you have the cap removed, push the shaft the rotor is attached to from side to side. If you find excessive play there the distributor itself may need replacement.

As thundergod said check the plugs,wires and the distributor for wear..but in the 95 the o2 sensors dont play much role..Or if your in a quite bad luck like i had can be a head gasket pressure leak..But do check the injectors first..Regards..

    i also have a 95 JGC and it likes to shake itself to pieces literally. About the same time the shaking started my exhaust manifold cracked. I replaced the manifold and it was still doing the shaking after about a week of playing around with it and cleaning and replacing sensors i discovered that the drivers side motor mount was bad. They don't cost that much to purchase but are rather difficult to get to. I haven't done mine yet but will be next weekend. I have the 4 liter Inline 6. Take a look at the drivers side and passenger side mounts if they look like the rubber bushing is pushing out the back of them then they are bad. The gap above the bushing and the through bolt is normal but when the rubber starts pushing out the back then you have a problem as in my case it caused my exhaust manifold to crack and i just hope that i can get it repaired before it cracks this new one i installed. the motor mounts can also cause performance issues such as excessive shaking while maintaining a speed of 35-50 MPH when the overdrive engages. And when I say excessive shaking i mean it feels like it is going to fall apart around you, but that only happens when they are totally gone like mine is. It is also not a bad idea to check into replacing the passenger side mount while you have the motor lifted up/jacked up. it could save you from another headache 6 months down the road. In truth you can get all three mounts the passenger side, the drivers side, and the transmission mount from a parts store for less than a hundred dollars total.

The sensor is mounted in a fixed position in the engine block. The tip of the sensor protrudes into the crankcase at a distance of 0.05 plus or minus 0.02 inch from the crankshaft.
