Severe shaking

(1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee)
I recently noticed that whenever I drive over bumps in the road, my jeep begins to shake severely until I slow my speed down to nearly 10 or 15mph. What could be causing this to happen and how much will it cost to repair? I also noticed that it needs a front end alignment and was hoping that this would be the solution to the problem, but I am completely unsure.

This sounds like a toe out problem! And there may be a stabilizing shock that is supposed to help eliminate any wheel shimmy ,but also check for out of ballence ,due to a heavy amount of mud clumpted up on the inside of the wheel rim.If you like playing in the mud!Or a bent rim!Sounds like any alighn,ment done should help,but look for the most obvious first.Jack up both wheels and eye the rotation to see if both wheels rotate in a true even circle!Look for wobble and out of round tire tread!Bounce the front end,see how manny times the bumper comes up! 3 may mean really weak shocks!
