Just replaced tie rod that attached to pitman (the long one), and got death wobble again today on the way to work. Do I need to get an alignment now and would the alignment cause dw?

youtube, "planman death wobble" will end up with 2 videos that are great info for examining the front end.

Just for clarification. The link that connects to the Pitman arm is the drag link. The link that connects the two front wheels is the Tie Rod. JJ is right follow Planman's systematic diagnostic process to find the sources of your DW first. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f202/diagnosing-death-wobble-and-fixing-non-dw-shimmies-and-wobbles-78034.html
They called it a tie rod and it was in their computer system as a tie rod. No idea why. It is the drag link. I watched this video 25 times. It is the way to finding it out. Just takes some patience that I don't think I have yet.
