I am losing control over the streering of the vehicle at 45 MPH due to tremendous shaking on front end. Axle is moving right to left, you can actually look out the window and see the tire out of the tire well and it looks as though it is going to fall off. Have checked just about everything, tires, alignment, bearings, tie rods, stabalizer bars, shocks, struts, and will replace bushings today. Axle is not bent. Any help of what to look for next would be appreciated.

Theres only 2 things that can cause the axle to shift side to side or appear to do so.

A loose track bar will give you "Death Wobble". There cant be any play at all on either end. Both ends need to be gorilla tight.


Bent wheels can cause the same symptoms and look like the axle is moving.
