death wobble almost gone need help

Hi guys my truck started to get a shake about 4 months ago and it turned into full death wobble. I have it almost gone the only time it tries is when I use the brakes mostly downhill and it just shakes a little like it wants to wobble but it doesnt freak out. The truck is a 2003 6.0 on a kelderman air ride kit with 40 inch toyos. Over the last few montgs I replaced the track bar it was shot, all new shocks, tires rotated and balanced, new steering box, allignment, and checked stabilizers and ball joints. Ive givin it a shakedown and dont see any play at all in the front end. I was going to buy new rotors and pads thinking that when I drove it for a few weeks wobbling I would jam the brakes when it started and I figured maybe I warped or damaged one? And it only does it while braking ive hit the roughest roads and railroad tracks I can find from 20 to 60 mph and its super tight not even a shimmy. Any input and advice would be great. Im selling the truck since I bought a new one and I would like to have it sound so the wobble doesnt show up in a couple months for the new owners like it did for me.

If there is too much positive caster it will be more prone to the death wobble. Besides that it is most likely loose steering parts: tie rods ball joints even a bad steering stabilizer will do it.
