extreme steering shake

i got a 95 f350 cc psd. The front end gets a death wobble which happens at no spacific time or speed. i have checked all joints in the front and all are good. any ideas what to look for would be helpfull.

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.
