I just replaced 1 tie rod end and the other two tie rod bars. It steers great but both front tires start shaking real bad between 30 an 40I miles per hour.. what could it be??

Get an alignment, check all the other joints and bushings (springs, shackles & track bar)

You have death wobble

Everything seems nice an tight except the radius bar. It seems slightly loose but not bad.. just seems crappy it didn't do it till I put the new bars back on it. It acts like I'm twisting the heck out of the steering wheel. The tires just bounce right an left real fast between 30it & 40.

Tire balance, alignment, other worn parts,...........

Track bar should be SUPER tight with ZERO movement

Does it need a new steering stabilizer shock? I have had those go bad and cause a death wobble.

The steering stabilizer is only covering up the problem.

Then I found another mechanic full of it. Without a stabilizer my truck cant do 40mph without the death wobble. Mechanic said everything else was perfect so i got a stabilizer and all is well sorta. sometimes i can feel it trying to shake. Not looking for responses. i am not hijacking!

Finally got it fixed. Was way out of alignment.. my truck doesn't have a stabilizer. An it steers like a dream now.. a stabilizer should only help with the wondering of larger tires.. anything under a 35I u realy shouldn't need one.
