As 38chevy454 mentioned, I would suspect possible excessive wear in steering linkage and perhaps a need for a front end realignment.

Good Luck

The F-53 chassis has long front leaf springs and a lot of flex in the shackle bushings. If indeed all of the front end components are good, a front Trac-Bar and Safe-T-Plus should take care of the "death wobble".

Hi. I also have a 1997 Tropi-Cal and have experienced the "Death Wobble". It's not uncommon on the Ford front end. It's caused by your front end running over potholes, rail road track etc at different angles. Just slow down until the wobble stops and you're good to go again.

The Jack Down light is caused by your jack reservoir being low on fluid.
