Well, i know there are numerous things that can cause a vehicle to shake like a bitch when you hit a bump or rock or anything at a bit higher speeds, well, last night goin down 0 Ave, any time i hit a raised intersection over 50 my truck would start shaking very hard until i slowed down til 20, im just wondering what are some common causes of it, i know theres lots of things that can, but i just want some things to check... loose drive shaft? fucked motor mount? i dont really have that much of an idea....

sounds liek you go the death wobble. I just fought and won teh battle on my ford. first had to get my track bar put in and got all new leaf bushings. that was causing the wobble over bumps. then I got that all fixed and put 38s on and soon as I hit 50 it would do the same thing. so we put 3 1/2 inch fender washers on top of each king pin spring on my dana 60 and its been fine ever since. also wanna check all your tie rod ends and track bar bushings

Jack up both front tires and give each one a shake, it could be ball joints, tie rod ends, steering stabalizer, loose wheel, etc. That's where I would start anyways.

what about wheel bearings and unballanced wheels, also from what ive heard the steering stabalizer isnt really the cause of it, but it will help prevent it, but i could be wrong

pretty much what everyone else is said. anything that has any movement can cause it. mine was caused by worn on balljoints. you can also get someoone to sit in the truck while its running and get them to turn the steering wheel from 9 o clock to 3 o clock, or just until the tires start to turn, and see if you can see anything wiggling. put your hand on things like the tire, track bar, tie rod, and stuff like that to see if you can feel any clunking.
