Front end shaking!

Coming home from work the other day, my truck went crazy! I thought both my front tires were going to come off! I was accelerating from a stop, and when I got to about 45mph the front of my truck started shaking really hard! I slowed down and stopped and looked at my front end, and everything looked fine, but when I got to about 45mph, it did it again. I limped home at 30mph. I need help! I'll try to get it to Big O on monday.

I'd be checking those front tires really close, make sure you don't have a tire separating, hate to have a steering tire come apart at highway speed. I would also check your rims close, I've seen them crack as well.

My rims and tires are brand new and appear to be fine. My lug nuts are all tight also. I am thinking u-joints and tie rods.

Sounds like the "death wobbles" to me, check the trac bar bushinds and radius arm bushings.
