Default 2011 Ram 3500 DRW "Death Wobble"

I have a 2011 Ram 3500 DRW 4x4 with 13,321 miles on it. I purchased the truck new. Back from a trip, I hit a pothole with the right front tire and all hell broke loose. I was going 40 mph at the time, in heavy traffic when the truck started violently shaking. I applied the brakes (as I have done in the past) when the front end started shaking, the truck started bouncing, front and back and I could not control the vehicle. Once my speed dropped below 5 mph I was able to steer the truck to the side of the road. The truck was towed to the nearest Chrysler dealer, and they eventually replaced the steering stabilizer. My truck was laid up for 12 days, at two (2) different dealers, and it still has the wobble. The wobble is not as severe because of the "New" Stabilizer, but the problem is still there, just being masked. Sorry for the long first post. Any Ideas... Warranty is still good.
