Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
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).

I also have same year truck and same shake like hell after hitting bumps in road. Does seem to be when wheel is slightly turned. I found play in both upper and lower ball joints on both sides and the play is up and down not in and out meaning wiggling tire in and out towards center of truck from the top and bottom of the tire. Jack truck up, secure on stationary jacks, put 2x4 under tire and lift tire straight up..should be no play..I have 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch on each side. I am currently dismantling truck to replace. I saw reply about bad tires; that very well could be true in some instances but I had oversized tires that shook when bump was hit, then I put stock tires back on..have same problem. Seeing you have the same problem makes me hope it's not an engineering problem. I wonder how prevalent this situation is.

I also have a 04 dodge and ive replaced every thing new with rancho stabilizer shock and shocks i had 37 inch tire and did it put on stock and today i was driving straight on the freeway left side hit a small bump and i swear the truck was leaving the road good god it was really bad had to slamm on the brakes and stop the truck. This is the second time this has happened i started examining things and noticed that the coil springs are really soft and im thinking that they are loading up and at those speeds it dominos everything.
