over small bumps in the the road you can feel the truck wobbles and steering wheel shakes real bad, just replaced front shocks and balanced wheels, no change, anyone experience this and what else should I check. truck has 156,400 miles.

First off. You don't have a solid front axle. No way that's Death Wobble.

Jack up the front end. Grab the tire at 12 and 6 and attempt to move back and forth. Any movement?

Do the same at 3 and 9. Any movement there?

Listen for popping sounds.

I have similar mileage and felt the same feeling over bumps. I have replaced the shocks, ball joints, upper control arms, swaybar end links, hubs, axles, and wheels and tires. Swaybar frame mounts are solid. Steering rack bushings is my guess.

I have a 2008 Escalade 2WD and I prefer to drive it over my 2017 Escalade & 2016 Tahoe LT. I replaced both front and rear electric shocks on my 22” stock rims. I went the factory route with the shocks and Bridgestone tires. The newer shocks did say BWI (new part from GM) instead of Delphi/GM goodweench. I do want to say the PSI in the tires need to be at 33-34 psi. I also live in rough-road NYC!
