It could be a number of things. Google "XJ death wobble".

When it happened to me, it was between 50-70mph on the highway. Turns out one of my front shocks were frozen and the other had a leak. Got some new ones and it was fixed.

i have had multiple Xjs with this problem, usually was related to worn out wheel bearings.
