2003 mitsubishi outlander death wobble

I have a mitsubishi outlander, 2003 AWD. At slow speeds, it's not very noticeable, but running at the speed limit, it wobbles like a SOB. It pulls very hard to right, and is very noticeable on wet roads especially as if the vehicle is compensating for the pull and makes the *** end want to kick out. It feels like driving a RWD vehicle on ice. Does anybody know what is causing this? I almost crapped my pants a couple times driving in to work this morning. I honestly DO NOT feel safe driving this vehicle in it's current state.

SOURCE: death wobble in front end

If you have added a leveling kit you need to buy 2" longer shocks. The short beds have this problem with the leveling kits. Mine did the same thing twice and then I removed the leveling kit and it has been perfect ever since.

SOURCE: 1993pontiac grand am front wheels wobble while driving

Jack up the front wheels and rotate them by hand. Look for any runout that may be cause by a bent wheel. Also feel the tread as you rotate the tire. It should be smooth and concentric. If there are any bulges in the tread the tire is seperated. Grab the wheel at the top and bottom and push/pull. You should feel no play. If you do you woman have a bad wheel bearing. In order to check ball joints and tie rods you will need to have the tire off the ground and the jack under the subframe or pinch weld. This will not work if the jack is under the control arm. Grab the tire at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions and push pull. If you feel any play you either hav E worn ball joints or worn tie rod ends. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Could the front control arms be worn out and letting the differential shift around ?
