I would start with either new thrust arms with HD bushing or replacing your worn out fluid filled thrust arm bushings with HD bushings. Similar to what paf mentioned above I had the shimmy also and recently went through a front suspension overhaul however I know it wasn't my brakes/rotors or struts/springs and if I had to bet $$ I would have bet it was the thrust arm bushings that were replaced and/or the combination of those and the control arms. All of which need to be replaced at your mileage. Here is a good link to start with. Goodluck!

Mods: Shark Injected | Magnaflow Exhaust + Resonator | H&R Springs | Bilstein SP Shocks + Struts | TMS Power Pulleys
Eibach F+R Sways | BeastPower Brackets | M-Tech bumpers | Predator ICE V3 + HID Fogs | Eurodyne CF Hood | BSW Sub + Dice + spec dock
