Jeff,

My guesses in order of appearance the cavern of my mind:

bent wheels
out of balance wheels
old tires (old tires do weird stuff)
play in lower control arm bushings
play in ball joint in center link to pitman arm (even a small amount will screw you here since it controls the whole rack)
um, ever consider the shimmy is not coming from the front? drive shaft u joint maybe?

Scottie
