So, I changed out my drag link ball joints seemed to improve for a while but the wobbles are back. I have narrowed it down to wheel alignment and tie rod ends stuffed. Will try some toe in when I get home and change out the stuffed tie rod ends

Never had death wobbles. Just a shimmy. New tyres fixed it.
Must grease the king pin bearings one day.
Drop boxes and 3 " springs as far as suspension mods.

I'd be checking your panhard rod bushes properly first, if you get the death wobbles. I'd bet money they cause the majority of death wobbles. King pin preload really just gets rid of an annoying shimmy after balancing etc etc is checked.

You don't have this issue warthog. I'm speaking generally.

Franky.
