Question Wobble back

i had the "death wobble" about two weeks ago, i had a lube and balance done and it was fixed.

yesterday i got on the highway to go to 4 wheel parts. and the wobble returned. one of the guys down there said my steering stabilizer was leaking and that is the problem. does this sound right? im sure the guy knows what he is saying, i just wanted extra feedback.

most of the guys say that is just a band aid but it helped mine alot. Now that being said i still had a wheel out of balance, now i know you just had them balanced but you may have lost a weight or hit a curb knocked the alignment out a bit. I would replace stabilixzer if it's leaking but get your balance rechecked, they should do it free if there a good shop.
