Search for death wobble.
Go back all the way to 6 years ago. It has been covered in great detail several times every year or so.
That will be quicker answers than waiting for us to cover it again. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
A stabilizer is only a there to hide the true problem. Do as Will says and replace any worn joints. If that doesn't fix the problem, I would look at the steering box itself to see how much play it has in it.
For the record, I don't even have a steering stabilizer. I had to remove it when I installed the axle relocation plates to move the axle forward an inch. Last weekend I drove it 1300 miles to the badlands bash and back at 70-80 mph with no death wobble at all.
