death wobble and other

ok long story short...i snapped a tie rod end..i replaced all tie rod ends. drove it to work after getting it aligned and it death wobbled on me twice. so i replaced the steering stabalizers and the passenger side one was deff blown. and it hasnt wobbled on me since despite trying to make it happen. buutt the front end still seems to want to do what ever it wants to. it either pulls hard to the left or hard to the right and its never happend before snaping the tie rod. if im turning i have to physically put it straight or it will just stay there(like its not wanting to straighten itself out) i could do circles all day long if i wanted to. i just need some advice because its killing me.. its an 06 ram 2500. so new tie rod ends new bilstein shocks and new stabalizers since the snapped tie rod and death wobble

Yes there is a Track bar. Thuren is an exelent replacement, I changed to a Carli Adjustable from the OEM.

How did you snap the Tie rod? Did it cause an impact on one of your tires? Are the Grapplers D rated, I don't know...

are your front tires wearing way different wear pattern? and does your front end feel like it has a shudder to it?

Is the tie rod adjusted correctly? Sounds like not enough toe in, and it is hunting all over in the truck grooves in the road.
