There are a lot of causes for death wobble. But like Rammstein said is more rare on leaf springs. It can be caused by bad ball joints(not just in the knuckles or C's either)ball joints in your steering, loose track bar, unbalanced tires, worn hubs, unbalanced rotors, worn leaf/shackle bushings (make it more noticeable) sloppy/ bad steering box, bad alignment. Just to name a few. If it happens to be your hub/unit bearings be sure to buy quality ones with Timken bearings preferred. Otherwise you could be changing it in 2 weeks.
Almost forgot, if your steering stabilizer leaked out its fluid it won't help at all, I have had it make DW worse. (Been there & done that)
