Need death wobble help

2010 F-350, CC 4x4 LWB.. Same story as everyone else.. anything 40mph or up and the slightest bump or change in the road sends my truck rattling and shaking the teeth out of my head. The difference is that I don't have a lift as many of the others that have posted about this problem do. I have 35in 12.50x20 tires on stock rims, but I had the wobble even before replacing the stock tires. Everything I see points to the track bar. Does that sound reasonable? Replacing the track bar would repair the problems? If so what is a good aftermarket product to use?

Check the balljoint at the axle end of the track bar, these wear out allowing play which can lead to the wobble.

Check:
Tire pressure.
Front end alignment.
Steering stabilizer; Pull the bolt and inspect amount of play in track bar sleeve.
Steering box play.

Jack up front end and rock steering wheel back and forth and look for play in all of steering parts.
Anything loose will do it.
