Default Shaking during turns

Not sure if its just an alignment issue but wanted to check with you all to see if it could be more. When I am taking turns on the interstate the truck has begun to shake pretty violently. Its an '08 with about 45k miles. Any other thoughts?

Sounds like the death wobble I been hearing about, never experienced it but someone posted a link that had a link about a kind of bracket that ties the bottom of the frame together at the gear box, I will look for it , it wasnt but a few days ago that I read it on here..

Here's one where the "death wobble" is being discussed, if that doesn't help, let me know, and I will search some more.

If it isn't death wobble problem, you could have a tire out of round or out of balance.
I lost a weight on one tire once, didn't notice til it was to late, now tire is screwed and so is my smooth ride. But i did installed a steering box stabilizer by BD Diesel on my rig to get rid of the death wob's and it worked really nice (i also run 35x12.50 and road grooves are another discussion)
