Wobble on front end

I have a 2001 F350 drw that has developed a wobble when hitting a bump on the right side. Left side is fine and it dosen't do it no matter what you hit. Even when driving down a bumpy road everything is fine. Only does it when the right tire hits a bump. Any Suggestions?

Check to make sure your track arm bolts are tight.

Are there any aftermarket tie-rod ends that are heavier duty then the stock ones? I do a lot of back road driving with my '05 Excursion (live axle front end not coil) and I end up replacing them every two years.
