I would probably jack up that wheel and check the wheel bearings and ball joints first.

Check the ball joints and sway bar link bushings.

That is a good sign. So why do you think it is your shock? Is it loose?

Next step for me would be to throw a jack stand under each side of the axle and get the truck up in the air. Then grab and feel everything, turn the wheel , watch it. See what you can find.
