Put on the spare tire and see if that helps. If it does, go to the tire store and use your hazard coverage for them to check your rim for being bent or your tire from having a bruised belt. The rim is your responsibility, the tire is the tire stores. An 04 should have spare rims in Salvage yards. You can go online for those if need be.

You'll probably have to put a visegrip on the opposite side of the bracket from the nut . Or you'll have to cut off the nut and destroy the link.

SOURCE: I have a Pathfinder 96,
Yes it could. What happens is the bushings go bad and you don't have any problems until the bushing comes out. When they wear completely out sometimes they get pinched completely in two. And then it will have these types of problems.

"Death wobble" is generally caused by wear of any component in the front suspension, sometimes working in combination (total play added together). It can be set off by a slight turn of the wheel, a small bump or even a difference in harmonics. Odd causes are improper wheel torque and tires that are not worn enough to fail inspection but have lost enough tread that they no longer have sufficient rotating mass and are then prone to going into a shake when they flex.
Most common cause is worn lower ball joints. Second to that is wear at a suspension bushing or the frame mount hole for that bushing.
One item that is often blamed for wobble is the steering damper (a sideways shock attached to the steering linkage) If you have one, it can be damaged by the shake but is never the cause.
There is another condition that can mimic death wobble. If you have a binding brake caliper it can cause the front end to shake. If either of your brake rotors appear to be blue, or one is much hotter than the other after driving, you can suspect that.
As a last resort, you can often adjust the caster setting (wheel alignment) to a bit more positive. That will tend to force the front wheels to track in a straight line. (same reason you can ride a bicycle without holding the handlebars)
I can't tell you what is worn or malfunctioning only because I can't examine the vehicle but if you use the info I outlined and examine everything very carefully I'm certain that you will find it.
Regarding how quickly your bushings may have worn, You didn't mention how long ago you did the work.
