Have you checked/replaced the ball joints? That usually will fix the problem but there are other causes as well. If the track bar mount hole is oblong that can cause a problem as can wheels that are not torqued to specifications. In extreme cases, adding some positive caster over factory alignment specs can also help.
The steering damper (sideways shock attached to steering linkage) is often blamed for shake but it gets damaged by the shaking and is not the cause) check that and replace if needed AFTER you have fixed the problem.

Are any of the parts on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee interchangeable with a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee? rear axle,wheels, power-steering, hood hyrdraulics?


A few parts should be interchangeable. Most of them will not be however since the Grand Cherokee underwent a complete re-design for 1999. Some engines and transmissions will switch out. The rear axle in the 97 was commonly a Dana/Spicer 35. This was replaced with a larger rear differential in 1999 for increased towing capacity. The wheels should interchange ok, power steering system was pretty much the same and as long as the hydraulics (supports) on the hood are the same length they should work

I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. My front end began rattling back and forth very badly when I would hit approximately 50mph but the problem would alleviate itself when i braked, then eased over...


The problem you have is called "Death Wobble" and is well known in the Jeeping community. It is almost always caused by a loose track bar, either at the axle end or frame end. First check the tightness of the bolts at both ends. Any play in the track bar will cause death wobble. A certain cure is a new track bar with the fasteners torqued to the correct specs. Most of the time though, just tightening the bolts at the frame and axle ends will cure the "shakes". The grey bar in the picture is the track bar.

Rear end body sways back and forth on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee


check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

My 99 jeep cherokee shakes in front end around 60mph


You didn't supply a lot of info but generally a consistent shake at a particular speed is caused by wheel balance being off. Before having the balance checked look at the wheels inside and outside. Many times you can get either mud or ice packed in that will disturb the balance.
If balance is good, then you need to have the front end components checked for wear. If the shaking is very violent, it may be what's known as "death wobble" which can stem from excessive wear of components, usually either ball joints or track bar but everything's suspect. If you have that you can't mistake it as the steering wheel feels like it is trying to rip right out of your hands!!!.

My 99 jeep is shaking when i drive over 45mph


if it is shaking all the time it is more than likely bad tires or they are out of balance, if only when braking then it will be warped rotors.
