If the play is side to side, it's most likely the idler arm and maybe the pitman arm. If the play is up and down with the wheels off the ground, I'd check the ball joints for play and then the bearings.

If you can shake your tires, with the igniton locked, it's something in your steering systerm. Not your sway/stablizer bar. On your truck, if I belive what your talking about, if it's on the drivers side, I belive it would be the pitman arm, on passanger, idler arm. Need to see to say for sure though.

Have you had your tires balanced? have you had an alignment? do you have any broken suspension parts front or rear? Is your drive shaft bent? balanced? What makes you think changing differential assemblies will stop the 'shaking'?

I have a 1998 Chevy Tahoe that shake very bad I just had the tires rotated and balanced and changed .the shaking is not coming from the motor isn't coming from under the truck .

One of the wheels you just moved to the front is probably out of balance. (it would be out of balance on the rear, too, but you wouldn't notice it as much there)

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced

You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

What are the symptoms of a steering columb going bad?mine shakes at certain speeds

Shaking could be caused by a bad tire, unbalanced tire or problem in the suspension. You can put the front tires on back and back on front. If the shaking stops its related to the tires.
