Complaint - Steering, Suspension

WHILE DRIVING DOWN STRAIGHT DOWN THE HIGHWAY ABOUT 50 MPH. I CROSSED A BRIDGE EXPANSION JOINT AND THE FRONT OF THE PICKUP SHOOK VIOLENTLY. I HAD TO APPLY THE BRAKES FIRMLY AND PULL TO THE SHOULDER QUICKLY. I THOUGHT THE FRONT END OF THE TRUCK WAS COMING APART AND I WAS GOING TO WRECK. THIS HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE AND THERE WAS NO WARNING PRIOR TO THE EVENT. I HAD BEEN DRIVING ABOUT 20 MILES BEFORE THIS OCCUR. IT HAPPENED AGAIN SEVERAL DAYS LATER. I ONLY HAVE 28K MILES ON IT. MY FRIEND LATER TOLD ME THIS WAS THE 'DEATH WOBBLE' AND THAT HE HAD IT ON HIS F250-2012. HE SAID IT REQUIRED REPLACEMENT OF A SUSPENSION BAR(TRACK BAR) ON THE FRONT OF THE TRUCK WHICH I HAD DONE. NO FURTHER PROBLEM HAVE BEEN NOTED SINCE REPLACED..1 WEEK AGO. THE SHOP WHERE I HAD THE WORK DONE SAID THEY HAVE FIXED ABOUT 70 TRUCKS AND IT WILL OCCUR AGAIN WHEN THE BALL JOINT ON THE BAR WEARS OUT AGAIN. I HAVE A KING RANCH MODEL WITH 20 INCH TIRES THAT MAY BE A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR. OTHER PEOPLE I KNOW WITH F250S AND 18 INCH TIRES HAVE NOT NOTICED THIS PROBLEM.
