Sorry I gave so much randomness.. He said he wanted info before he went to the Mechanic.. I was just throwing it out there. IMO I would look at the joint from the Drag to the Pitman as well..... especially if the Tracbar was totally broken .. I was kinda being random for information sake. I will shut up now. I like the advice of getting tools and taking it on yourself. I made the mistake of trusting a mechanic more than once.
Have you ever had someone say “I read online that….” Really? You read it online so that makes it true? Sometimes yes, but where did you get your information?
Did you loosen your control arms before putting the lift on? Do you have aftermarket control arms or stock? Have you checked the trackbar bushing? Have you looked at the ball joints, TREs, upper control arm axle bushings? Have you done a dry steering test? If you check all of these parts and do the dry steering test, that should reveal what is loose.

It would cause a shimmy but not death wobble. You need to loosen all of your control arm bolts to relieve the bushing of bind. That will help some if your bushings aren't shot. You don't have to take the bolts all the way out, you just need to loosen them enough to relieve the joint.
Alignment usually makes it go away. Was the original tracbar for a lifted front end? If so, I see where the problem came from.
