Steering wheel wobble

At about 35 to 40 mph my steering wheel wobbles. I jacked it up and got no side to side or up/down play on either wheel. I've replaced the right front joint as the boot was torn and i didnt know how long it was torn. I cant find any play in anything and I've replaced the steering box. I've also done all new pads and rotors along with new u joints in the front and rear drive shafts. I have the three amigoes and my next investment is a reader to find out what codes its throwing. Is there a common problem that could be causing the wobble that Im unaware of?

a bad tire maybe..
move the fronts to the back and see if the wobble moves.

How many miles on the truck, is the suspension original?

180k with 80K on the second engine. I have 1.5" lift springs/extended shocks (Supergaz) from Attlantic British. I was having too many problems with the air bag things so I eliminated them. I figured 1.5" was sensible and i still fit in some parking garages.

I forgot to mention that after laying under the truck inspecting all the bushings etc in a fit of desperation I took the truck to Pep Boys. I figured they would at least make up a reason to repair something but I was wrong. They gave her a clean bill of health. Same with the guys at NTB.

If it were me I'd still rotate the tires again just to be sure
Clean bill of health from a NTB is not exactly peace of mind..

Had the same issues with my Disco and changed the following things and bam no more wobble. First the tie rod ends and then the shock bushings and no more wobble. Next on my agenda is the suspension and springs along with bushings all the way around. Good luck
