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 !

My dear if according to you,
You've replaced tie rod ends, lower ball joints, sway bar links, struts and strut ends, and the warped brake rotors and the issue is still at hand; then you ought to consider replacing the hubs.

SOURCE: Front wheel shakes while braking
Several possibilities. Try stopping the car with the parking brake and see if you notice as much shimmy. While loose tie rod ends can cause problems, it sounds more like the rotors may need resurfacing. A worn wheel bearing could cause a problem. Jack the car up so the wheels are off the ground and see if you can move the wheel back and forth. Loose tie rod ends would also show up with this test.

I like the post above reference the brakes if there is pulsing when you stop. The struts make the most sense if your front end is bouncing. If the front end shakes when you hit a bump you should check alignment... But you may have the same problem I just went through... The upper and lower control arm bushings were worn out and loose. This is best indicated by squeaking and it is hard to replace them. I would take a minute to jack the frame then check the slop on you wheel both side to side and up and down. Last but not least you did not mention outer tie rods? Those were the worst on my 2001 durango. By the way my knucles are still healing from the ball joints!
