I've already got the lower control arms for caster and a JKS track bar, so I'm hoping its just a loose bolt or bushing. There's a possibility that ball joints could make the wooble.

Start with your front trackbar. If you have a loose bolt or wallowed out hole on either side, DW is likely to happen. The trackbar bracket that is welded on the axle is notorious for wallowing out if the bolt is a little bit loose.

Last night I went over the track bar. It doesn't appear to have any wallowing and it didn't look like there had been any movement in the joints/bolts/nuts against the metal.

Ball joints though have at least 1/16" to 1/8" of play vertically. I can't tell if there is any play in the uppers, so thrusday night I'm going to replace the lowers and see if that does it.

Look for lateral movement in the ball joints.

Do the dry steering test, and check for movement at either end of the drag link.

In my case the end of the drag link at the pitman was shot. Turns out the other end was shot, too, but I didn't discover that until after I replaced the pitman arm end...

Another thing to pay close attention to is your control arm bushing's. This was pivotal in my case. No pun intended...

Diagnose each joint/connection, then repair or replace if necessary.
