driveline vibration, 00 crewcab bone stock

im having an intermittent driveline vibration on my buddies 00 f-250 crewcab 4x4 psd. it is bone stock including wheels and tires and it very rarely does it but when it does it does it for many miles before going away. we did brakes and new tires but still does it. i put it in nuetral going down the road and it didnt change. is it possible it needs a steering stabilizer?

the tires are brand new. the old tires did it and so do the new ones so i dont think i am on the right track. he said the wheel does shake but it feels like the whole vehicle is shaking

the older trucks would do this with a worn out track bar...but ive never seen it on a 99+ truck.....it would pull the wheel right out of your hand if you werent carefull...

i checked out all the suspension and steering and the only thing i seen was the pitman arm tie rod end had a little bit of play but everything else was tight. i thing i might try a steering stabilizer. does any one know of any good kits that are bolt on?

Rancho makes one. A shade over $100 IIRC.... Also I would check the tierod ends. They may be worn. Or mabey a wheel is out of round.
