I don't know exactly what the symptoms are but I would have you go to the jeep and push it back and forth then see how much play there is at the joints (if the bushings are worn out)
I can only leave it to imagination how dangerous it would be to have that much undesired movement when moving down the freeway at 70 mp/h
