Default 94 Ram DEATHWOBBLE

i recently bought the truck for 800 bucks and was told the ball joints need changed. This past weekend i changed balls joint track bar and new brakes pad and rotors. Changed the differential gear oil front/back. The truck has 31's and im looking to find out the reasoning other than the tires on what is causing the wobble. The spedo doesnt work so i dont know the speed when the wobble starts.

Had the dreaded death wobble on my old 01 so bad felt like the damn truck was going to shake and brake to pieces. Happened at about 35 mph. Replaced trac bar with a Thruen bar and truck drove nice.

Did you change ball joints yourself? All my ball joints need changing as well, A friend was gonna do it for me, but said no go, because of the type they were they needed to be done in a shop....
