vibration at highway speeds

Hello I drive a 98 Jeep grand Cherokee limited 5.2 l v8 with a 3 inch rough country lift kit. I can typically hear some sqeaks at typical city speeds but they are scattered. When getting up to 45 it starts to shake and does so more the faster you go. I can feel the shaking in the steering wheel and in the vehicle. Took it to get tires rotated and balanced and I'll test drive tomorrow to see if it helped. But my CV joint (I thinj) is shot and is clicking at slow turns. Would this be the culprit? If not what else could it be?

Dui you have adjustable track bars? Have you replaced control arms and tie rod ends?

I doubt it. I believe tie rod ends and track bar was replaced 1000 miles before I bought it which was 3 weeks ago and it was anever taken off road. So I doubt it has an adjustable track bar. Why do you ask? By that I mean what could/would that have to do with it?

You might want to torque down all the parts in the front end, does not hurt to double check to make sure it's all tight there

I couldn't find anything that was lose but I find out my e brake is non existent and I need rear brakes and rotors. Could this contribute to the squeak or shake?
