i have a 97 ram 1500 2wd and going 55mph you hit a little dip in the road and the front tires wobble back and fourth violently (i mean it will rattle your teeth out) the truck has new upper and lower ball joints the tie rod ends are tight, the bushings in the control arms are good and had the alignment checked and was good i even had the shop put more caster into the truck it had +3.4 degrees of caster on both sides with cross caster at 0.0 degrees they moved it to +4.6 and it still does the horrible shake does have any other ideas how to fix this or has anyone run into this problem before on a 2wd

how are your bearings?

See if you can wiggle the tires with no weight on them, see if anything that should not move does when the steering is worked back and forth with the tires on the ground at a standstill.
