Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.

When driving, have shimming/shaking of truck from 0 to 60 mph


You need to find if your problem is coming from front or rear first.Do a test drive where you can drive at slow speed with no traffic an a good road.At 10 to 15 mph,
notice if the steering wheel is rocking left then right.If itis your problem is in the front wheels,if it doesn't pick up speed to 15 to 20mph,notice whether your back side is rocking left and right,if it does your probable is in the rear wheels.Next is to see the wheels on a spin balancer to check for steel belt shifting in tire or bent wheels.If none of this helps you didn't mention any sounds,but check the u joints

Turbo 2ooo i think it might be some sort off bushes


juddering is UK english for shuddering in US english. The center bearing shouldn't move, i/e/ the shaft should rotate w/o side play in the bearing, but the rubber mounts for the bearing should be flexible. The needle bearings in the universal joints in the front to rear drive shaft can go bad, causing noise when accelerating and they're not changeable w/o special tools. Your problem also sounds like differential, which would mean that you need to change the gear oil in the rear differential. As the oil ages it stops working properly in the limited slip differential even if visually OK. Do the front differential at the same time, engine heat ages it even faster. The center diff is in the AT, so you would change the AT filter and fluid.
How to tell which problem you have... in a parking lot with dry pavement, stop the vehicle, turn the wheel hard right, accelerate a moment, and repeat hard left and centered. If its worse turning, than straight suspect the differential fluids first. If its the same turning or not and especially if its the same on wet or dry pavement and at slow and high speed then look into the propeller shaft first.
