Death wobble is a Dodge Ram issue

In all seriousness, does it happen at all speeds or high speeds? Has anyone put the front end in the air and wiggled the tires and checked for loose/broken parts? Generically thinking, these ideas come to mind (and are usually easy to check):
- Broken sway bar end links
- Broken sway bar
- Worn out sway bar bushings
Going deeper:
- Worn brake rotors (I had some that caused a horrible shimmy while braking on a different car).
- Bent rim
- Tie rods
- May need to diagnose components on the other side.
