I've been reading some older posts trying to find out what was causing my front end shake. I had replaced tie rods, ends, tires, checked wheel bearings and none of it worked. Thanks to this sight, found out about steering box. I replaced it, my power steering pump (sucked) and return and pressure lines. Went for a test drive today on bumpiest roads I could find and no wobble. Thanks everyone.
By the way, got my steering box (with pitman arm) for 90$. I had been told it would cost 600$ for a mechanic to replace. Nothing like doing a little work yourself to save some money.

Used Auto Parts Market
It is a salvage yard in Brownwood,Tx. Uses car parts interchange. The steering box was only 75$ and the shipping was about 15$. Thanks for all of your help.
