I came across this, after someone suggested I look into steering column bushing for my death wobble. It subposedly reduces the play in steering which can be caused by the spring mechanism in the steering column. It's about 60 bucks, and there is a video:
I imagine there are other alternative brands out there, but this is the one I came across:

That bushing didn't help me and was a pain in any area that has extreme temp changes as it will shrink when cold and makes turning the wheel harder.

I agree with the red head box and the brace. Have you checked your steering shaft the joint wears out and needs replaced. I got a borgerson shaft.

Other than that if your track bar is good most of the time your upper joint wears out quick. Turn the wheel while watching for movement. Lastly I like the lukes link on a factory lifted truck.
