Nor sure about the 2001 model, but on the 97 model, the track bar bolts to the frame on the driver's side. The bolts work loose. Dont merely look at it, go ahead and tighten them. There are two bolts facing upward, at the end lf the track bar. Then there are 3 nuts behind the driver's side front wheel that need to be tight. You dont have to take the wheel off so see them. I tightened all of mine and the death wobble nearly went away ....( 90%)....then I replaced the steering stabilizer ( damper). Hope your 2001 is just as easy !

This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!

Testimonial: "thank you very much, i will do this first thing. i have had several people look at it , and of course they have told me it was not the tie rods,i knew"
Could possibly need the steering box adjusted. It might be a little loose. And tire balance usually makes it shimmy. Could have a broken belt in one of the tires. Jack up the wheel and spin the tire and check the run out. (look for a wiggle when spinning the tire).
