Steering diagnosis

so when i hit bumps at lower speeds (below 45mph) the steering wheel begins to shake until i turn it one way or the other. i have ruined a steering stabilizer in a little over a year. i don't really remember when the problem started but best i can remember it started when i got my 31's. any suggestions beyond alignment and balance?

So I'm assuming you've had an alignment and balance then?

Sounds like the death wobble....

Check to make sure all of you steering linkages and ball joints are tight. Have a buddy turn the steering wheel back and forth while you are looking at each joint to ensure integrity. Be sure to check the track bar mount and bushing.
