Shock trouble?

I have a 2011 Wrangler Sport and there is somethin funky going on with the front right tire when I take left turns. It happens when I'm on highways in the mountains going around bends and I hit a bump in the road. If I hit an uneven part of the road the front right tire starts to shake. It feels like driving with a flat tire and it just keeps skipping almost. Its hard to explain, but the jeep won't stop shaking until I slow to 15 mph or stop completely. I told this to a friend of mine who races and he said it might be something with the shock? I thought it was maybe the alignment so I got that checked and fixed and not an hour after, it went out of whack again and shook the whole car. What is this? It's not the 4wd cuz it's not on unless it needs to be. The left tire doesn't do it. I need to figure it out cuz its really dangerous when I'm driving to Denver from Steamboat and I'm in the left lane with nothing but semi's to my right and I need to stop cuz the car is going crazy! Help me out guys!

Bad Shock generally would cause it to just bouce more than usual. I would jack up that wheel up. Check for any thing loose. See if the ujount in the right axle joint is loose.

Just went through a similar problem on my TJ. felt like a blown shock checked all of them then found the stabilizer was blown. put on a new steering stabilizer and it drives like a new jeep. Check for oil residue around the shaft. That was my tell. Good luck.
