Default "dodge death shaking"

I have looked on a lot of other posts and I was wondering if what they refer to this as the "dodge death wobble" is whats wrong with mine.

at high speeds like 70 + going around corners on the highway my truck literally feels like its about to snap in half from how bad it shakes. and even when driving down a bumpy road at 20+ the steering feels really loose and weak??

its worse turning one way than the other (cant remember right now if its left or riht) but both ways are still horrible. if this thing they're referring to is my problem how do I fix it?

A few things come to mind...

- Out of balance wheels or snow/mud throwing off the balance

- Alignment off

- Bushings shot

Any mods to the suspension? How many miles? Hope you get it figured out!!!

well I had the hub assembly replaced in both wheels about 35,000 miles ago. ill probably look into the bushing and I was thinking and it might be a tie rod or something.

the suspension is all stock. thank you for the reply
