Default 94 Ford PU Death Wobble???

Looking for some thought on how to fix the death wobble on this ford F-150 1994 at higher speeds & big bumps? Just bought this truck & of course I should of put it on the highway but didn't. Just bought new 33's and still wobbles like hell????

Is it lifted?

If so, look at the pitman arm, is it a drop pitman arm? You want the tie rods from knuckle to knuckle and pitman to be as horizontal as possible. If not, then when you hit a bump and the susp. cycles you get bad toe change which makes for a scary exp.

Great first post, you will last longer if you post in the correct tech forum. But sounds like possibly radius arm bushings?

If i had a valve stem cap up my ass I'd know it and your asking me if your ass is full enough with 4 3-wheelers! I have no ideal if it is "BUTT" buy the sound of things you might be able to up grade a get a 4-wheeler or two in there sideways.

Oh! Thanks for the suggestion
