Help with steering shimmy

All of the sudden when turn corners at low speed or high speed the steering wheel "and jeep" shakes back and fourth.

I took the jeep in to the local shop and the rotated and balanced my tires and checked my alignment. The tires were in fact out of balance and the toe-in was very slightly set too wide.

They also checked the tightness off the track bar bolt and control arm bolts and everything else.

The wobble at 45 mph while going straight is now gone but it still shimmys when turning. What confuses me is that this problem started all at once. I went to lunch and when coming back from lunch it started doing this.

What else could it be?
