94 grand cherokee/stock/deathwobble

I have a friend who has a 94 grand cherokee that is bone stock, no modifications. Sometimes, not all the time, they will be driving down the highway and the steering will wobble. The only way to stop it is to slow down to 45 mph. It is so violent, that they do not have control of the vehicle. What can they look at to see what could be wrong with their jeep? Any suggestions will be appreciated. He did replace the steering stabilizer, I wonder if his ball joints are going out

Does it happen after hitting a bump in the road? For me it was my lower control arm bushings, but for most people it seems to be the track bar bushings. Do the simplest thing first. Rotate the tires and see if the problem follows the tire. If so then it could be a missing weight.

You can also read this. There is no direct answer.
