1993 chevy 1500 4.3 steering wobble (BAD)

Front end wobbles so bad it feels like the front tire is oval instead of round. Between 0 and 45 mph the steering wheel moves side to side so bad that i have to slow down and jerk the steering wheel to get it to calm down. At 55 to 60 mph i can still feel it but it is drivable. When braking: the front end shakes back and forth. To minimize this I pump the brakes. Does anyone know the main cause of this?. The body of the truck has 390,000. I know I have bad ball joints and other worn parts. But I don't have a ton of money to spend on it. Please help.

thats usually the place to start, need to replace all the worn parts. you can try checking the front tires to see if there is a busted belt and if it is oval and either replace them or rotate the tires if your hard on cash.

i had a old blazer that was the same way, shook so bad between 25-35 you couldnt drive it. old bias ply tires needed a ton of weights
