FYI: Shimmy in front end

Im posting this to help anyone chasing a shimmy in steering wheel at various speeds. I roadforced all tires 3 times , new wheel bearings (pitted races) and new tie rod assemblys . Still had shimmy, no play in front end whatsever (just backlash in rack) Took dive and did ball joints , Car is night and day , total pleasure to drive! dont cheap out like I did and try to avoid getting castle nuts that goes on bottom of balljoint( one side was welded on had to cut out. I found a air hammer with a pin bit pushes out the wedge bolts nice( mine were in there pretty good, just back off on the 13mm bolt a little and leave on wedge bolt or the bolt will fold right over. Get special tool for the castle nut for reinstall, if you do have it the castle nut will laugh at you as it resists. I just wanted to share info so you will not have to waste time !
