Tired of this POS truck

Damm death wobble came back the other day, dont even wanna drive this POS anymore, should have just bought an 03-04, my buddies never had this issue with leaf springs all around. Is there any REAL fix to this damm problem, i see even stock trucks get.
Mods are: 8in fabtech radius arm lift kit
Procomp Res. shocks
Fabtech 5.5in leafs in the rear with f350 block
Dual stabalizer
I just got the damm truck alligned about 7k miles ago, and it recently started wobbling a tad bit which it would always do at times, since the suspension is so stiff, and i fell every little thing on the road, then the other night it did it to the point i had to slow down on the freeway to about 30mph.
PLEASE: Is there a Solution to this crap?????

Your stabilizers are wore out. I had the same death wobble problem with mine. replaced them with superlift superide dual stabilizers and has not wobbled since.

Your track bar is probably loose. Take it off and sand the paint off the tracbar mount were it bolts too and then reinstall and torque to 430 ft lbs.

Granted I am only running a 6" lift on my '06 but I had the death wobble and I finally got rid of it. This is by no way a cure to your problems but might be a start. Steering stabilizer x3(2 pro comp and the factory), Track bar, ball joints x4, caster cams. Thankfuly it was all under warranty except the 2 pro comp stabilizers.

If your caster is on point like its supposed to be, wobble is almost always due to worn out steering parts. Also check your steering gearbox freeplay.

Noisy, knockin, fartin, smokin, chuggin, nasty, dirty, stinky, blown, turboed, natural aspirated, fuel waxin, oil leakin, torque makin love of my life Diesels.

I also have an quad cab cummins, 6 speed, air raid, fass, 4 inch straight pipe, & Smarty tuner.
I like places so cold you can spread diesel fuel on your toast like apple jelly.
