Exclamation Steering Problems HELP!!

When I am driving over 40 mph or when I hit bumpy patches or sharp turns my Jeep kind of gets a mind of it's own and steers itself wherever and I have to constantly correct it. The brakes, roters, and everything tire wise is fine I checked all of that. Sometimes it actually get's pretty violent and jerks me every which way. What should I look at next, is this a common problem? HELP!!

Sounds to me like a steering stabilizer

Look up bump steer, I'd bet that is the issue you are having. I understand one of the biggest causes is a dropped pitman arm depending on your set up. Search the TJ forum for bump steer and you should be able to find some info. Or check out this article.
