Engine light came on in my 98 TJ last week, i took it to oreilly's and had it scanned. it came back as P0551 power steering switch. well my power steering was fine so i had them reset it and it doesnt come back unless i accelerate past 50 mph??? btw it also wobbles pretty violenty between 45-52,55 mph???

You have a 4 cyl, right? That has a pressure switch in the power steering line. I think it is just below the pump. That switch may be bad. Here is the code info I have.

P0551--- Power Steering Switch Failure--- Incorrect input state detected for the power steering switch circuit. PL: High pressure seen at high speed.
