trackbar would be first plce i would look, then look at overall alignment, sometimes a toe in situation can cause it just as bad. but i would put my money on the trackbar.

great news.... most issues with deathwobble are related to the trackbar. you may have a shimmy or slight wobble from tires, bushings, or even worn tires and bad caster angles. but most uncontrollable """deathwobble """" seems to stem from the track bar.
