Bad Wobble After 40 MPH

I've had a wobble from 40 to 45 for a while but it was pretty mild. Yesterday my test track bar bracket bolt fell out so I replaced it and the front track bar bolt because the PO had stripped out the torx bolt. I torqued them down correctly and put locktite on them. Now I have a severe wobble after 40 mph and on. I though it would stop after 50 mph but it didn't. I have new hun assemblies and had my tires balanced about a month ago. Any tips in how to figure this out? Its dangerous to drive

Did you check the ball joint at the frame end of your track bar? Get under it and watch and feel while someone slightly turns the steering wheel back and forth to see if you can detect play in any suspension components.

U joint? Is it possible your needle bearings have gone out on the u joint? Tires? Bad ball joints?
