vibration and steering wheel shaking

I have a 2004 grand ch loredo 4wd. recently my jeep has started to vibrate and the steering wheel shakes while slowing down. its worse between 45mph down to 20 mph. it happens with or without aplying brakes, in or out of 4wd.
also tried coasting in neutral while slowng on an off ramp and still does it.
my mechanic checked u joints, trans mounts, got new tires/ballanced.
he also replaced the stabilizer shock and the track bar. none of this made a difference! im nearly out of money and really want to resolve this. the mechanic now sugests we change the tie rod or tie rod ends.
is this going to be a fix? what else is left to check?
love my jeep and just want it back the way it was without going bakrupt.
please help!

Sounds like it could be a wheel bearing problem? Maybe a broken axle shaft or worn down u joints.

Thats my stab at it.
