Re: 93 grand cherokee laredo-hard shake in the front end

have you looked at the front stabilizer shock? its been called the 'shimmy shock' because when it goes bad, the front end shakes.

Loose track bar is pretty common for this. Have someone work the steering wheel back and forth and look at all tie rod ends for play, or even play in the frame side track bar mount. Might want to look at the steering gear box also, as it may be loose/have broken. HTH.
