occasional death wobble 08 5500

I have an 08 5500, new shocks, had 2 shops inspect the front end finding no problems, but it will occasionally go into death wobble, and most of the time it is in the same spot of the same road. but my other 3 trucks don't do it. tire pressure is the same @ 85psi. any suggestions? they said it looks like a big tortion bar already, but aren't sure.

Alright guys, I got this one handled myself. I ordered a steering stabilizer kit from Rough Country for a 03-12 dodge ram 2500/3500. I cut the top flat bar off of the mounts, welded the mounts to my shock mounts, installed the rest of the kit as instructed, and the truck has never worked better.
