Default 99 ram w/5" lift server shaking in the front end

Alright so anyways here is my deal. I have a 5" lift on my 99 1500 sport. anyways ive had the shakes at higher speeds, but now there coming at lo speeds and when you hit bumps in the road. Um i do need a wheel alignment, but no where around my town will do one for this big of a truck, and the size tires on it. but I did realize my track bar mount cracked, but not all the way threw. rough country is supposed to send me a new one soon. Would that mount being cracked cause the whole truck to shake, almost like its twisting apart. if you look at the bed in the mirror it looks like its falling off. The only way to get the shake to stop is if you come to a complete stop. I think the problem is since the mount is cracked and the wheels need aligned a bit that the hole axle is shifting side ways back and worth and the stabilizer arms have a little bit of play in the bushings and is making the front end bounce of the ground. has anyone heard of this problem? thanks

I had a similar problem with an '83 Grand Jeep Wagoneer. I would get the dreaded "death wobble" and it would scare the crap out of ya. Mine turned out to be loose u-bolts holding the axle to the springs. I sounds like you have more problems and I don't think it is advisable to drive it until you get it fixed. A broken track bar along with loose bushings could easily cause such problems.
