Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The part you are looking at is the steering damper.It can be damaged by repeated shaking but won't cause it.
Likely the condition you have is caused by bad lower ball joints.
The lowers have no grease fittings and as such, fail earlier than the uppers. There are other causes but happen less often. Your track bar mount can wear oblong, overall cumulative wear of all front end parts can produce enough side to side play to do that or the wheels may not be torqued down exactly to specifications. In extreme cases where all is good but the shaking continues, you can have additional caster adjustment added to the alignment specs. I am assuming that your tires are properly balanced?
