Default getting the Death Wobble now

Well just replaced the clutch , and am starting to get the death wobble . Well , it has probably been coming on for a while now but I was thinking it was my shocks or old worn tires .Did see some play in the track bar today . Because of finances I am thinking a rebuild kit , precisely the Luke`s Link kit for the track bar , instead of a aftermarket upgrade . Anyone here use this and what are your thoughts on it ? Thinking of doing tie rod ends also if this seems to be a good product , as time and finances allow .
Any thoughts on this ?
Thanks

I had SolidSteel brace kit installed some time ago and have no problems since. Works wonderful while towing, no full left or right steering battle just to staybin one lane. Also had the Moog adjustable bearings put on and so far no problems there

You do not need adjustable ball joints unless the camber is off. They are a pain to have adjusted correctly and not easily changed once adjusted the 1st time. Certainly the chain shops and independents without competent people running the alignment machine have no interest in getting them right.

Are they adjustable or rebuildable? I will be putting in a set of rebuildable ones on my next go round, they are adjustable as they wear to take up the slack.
