Death shake is getting worse

When I got my 06 back last fall, it wasn't shaking at all. However, recently, it's begun to shake pretty good on certain sections of road, and it seems to be getting a little worse. Got the truck with 66k miles, it's up to 81k right now.

Happens when I'm turning. Straighten the wheel out and it goes away, but that's not always an option.

Anyone have a clue what needs to be worked on? Just a front end alignment, or something more extensive?

Sure hate to let the dealer play twenty questions with my wallet...

Mine did something similar on a previous and it was the u-bolts, but could quite possibly be ball joints or something in that area... but I'm no expert!

on a 06 model, if you have a bad shake when hitting certain bumps in the road , id bet on a tracking bar , there also is a ball joint mounted to the front end that connects the track bar to the front that needs to be replaced also

Glad an expert chimed in!
