Tell us more about your rig. Does it have a lift kit on it? How long are the shackles? What size and kind of tires?
I've read a lot of posts about "Death Wobble". That is what this sounds like. This is usually caused by long shackles and not enough caster in the front end alignment. Other causes are worn front end parts, worn wheel bearings, loose lugs, bad tires, steering and alignment. The usual problem is alignment caused by lifting the body/suspension imporperly. The problem is often masked by use of steering damper. If you get a new steering damper the problem will probably go away, but that really only masks the problem which should be addressed.
PS - do a search on "death wobble" for more input. This is very common.
