Front end shake/steering wheel play/ Death wobble

I have a 2010 f 350 with about 85k. I've replaced all tie rod ends, drag link, tried a aftermarket track bar (hated it), stock track bar back on, new track bar bushing, new track bar ball joint, new tires, full alignment (multiple checks). Had a rancho dual shock stabilizer kit and blew out both shocks after a year. It worked great till they blew out.

The truck has had a few months here and there where it worked great after each repair. It is a full time daily driver and part time work truck. I usually only use this truck to pull my dump trailer which weighs up to about 8k.

It seems as if my wheel has about 2-3 inches of play before the wheels react. If I'm going about 35 and hit a bump I shake for about 5 seconds (a slight death wobble). I'm thinking the steering box needs adjusting???

The tie rods all feel tight to me. I have a 250 with zero issues to compare to.

My mechanic told my not to use a new dual shock stabilizer because it covers real issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! If I cant resolve this I'm going to trade it in! Thank you in advance.
