Just some bad shaking going on

I replaced my steering box with a durango one I got out of a junkyard. That was a few months ago. Recently I noticed if i'm going around a turn and hit a bump, it seems like all hell breaks loose. The whole jeep just shakes like it's gonna to fall apart. I have to almost slow down to a complete stop before it stops. Now would you say the the steering box I got may be shot or do you think it could an alignment issue?

You have Death Wobble AD. Tighten up everything in your front end. Especially your trac bar at the axle and frame. Also check your control arm bolts and your steering. Something is loose or off in your front end causing this. Other misc. causes could also be excessive toe in/out and unbalanced tires.
