shimmy between 45 & 50, fixed deth wobble

shortly after buying my 2005 f350 6.0 4X4 super duty,among engine trouble i started having severe deth wobble when i would hit a bump, the first time it did it, it put me in the ditch with my wife, kids and a horse trailer hauling two draft horses. bad day but but everyone and all equpment was fine. anyways to help out a bit i replaced the two almost bald front baja atz tires and got nothing then i replaced the stearing stableizer and completly fixed the problem so im going to put a dual stabelizer on it this winter i belive that is going to be the proper fix. my new issue is the truck shimmys back and forth between 45 & 50 only dead on the money mostly under braking. i know 100 percent sure it is not the brakes all new everything and was fine after replaced. i am going to replace all 4 shocks with rough country nitro 9000's and then be on the hunt for a bad bushing somewere. also truck in no start condition the plugs going to the (ficm) were broke and came unpluged from last owner's handy work so i ziptied around the ficm and plugs replaced turbo and batterys and ran like new. hope that helps someone and imput appriciated.
