Complaint - Steering, Suspension, Wheels

I WAS DRIVING THE SPEED LIMIT OF 65 MPH ON THE INTERSTATE, WHEN THE TRUCK WENT OVER A ROUGH SPOT IN THE ROAD AND BEGAN TO SHAKE UNCONTROLLABLY. I COULD NOT STEER DO THE STEERING WHEEL AND THE FRONT OF THE TRUCK SHAKING SO VIOLENTLY. I MANAGED TO GET THE TRUCK SLOWED DOWN QUICKLY AND OVER ONTO THE MEDIAN. I STOPPED AND GOT OUT TO CHECK AROUND AND UNDER THE VEHICLE AND FOUND NOTHING. AS I ATTEMPTED TO GET UP TO SPEED AND MERGE BACK ONTO THE HIGHWAY THE TRUCK STARTED SHAKING AGAIN. AFTER GETTING UP TO ABOUT 50 MPH IT SMOOTHED OUT. I TOOK THE TRUCK TO DISCOUNT TIRE AND HAD THE WHEELS REBALANCED AND THE FRONT CHECKED WITH NO PROBLEMS NOTED. THE TRUCK HAS DONE THIS ABOUT 4 OR 5 MORE TIMES SINCE AND IT ALWAYS AFTER YOU GO OVER A ROUGH SPOT IN THE ROAD. THE VEHICLE SHAKES SO BAD THAT YOU CANNOT CONTROL IT AND YOU HAVE TO STAND ON THE BRAKE TO SLOW IT DOWN ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO STEER IT. THIS CAN RESULT IN A MAJOR ACCIDENT OR DEATH!!! I HAVE ALSO HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE TRANSMISSION SINCE THE TRUCK WAS NEW. WHEN IT SHIFTS FROM 1ST TO 2ND SOMETIMES THERE IS A LONG DELAY WHERE THE THROTTLE IS PUSHED DOWN AND THE TRUCK DOES NOTHING FOR APPROXIMATELY 5 SECONDS, THIS HAS OCCURRED NUMEROUS TIMES IN INTERSECTIONS AND CAN CAUSE YOU TO BE STRUCK IN THE SIDE. I HAVE HAD THE TRUCK TO THE SHOP 3 TIMES AND THEY CHANGED THE TRANSMISSION BODY AND THE TRANSMISSION PUMP AND IT STILL CONTINUES TO HAVE THE PROBLEM...
