Danny,Check the steering box,wheel bearings,spindels and rod ends for slop and looseness.Set the toe in to 1/4",very important to stop wheel shake.

next time you do this, put your toes on the steering rods at the sector arms. does the shimmy go away?

Yes? then you have some play in rear draglinks and probably need a backlash adjustment on the steering..

No? then you minght have some tie rod end, front hub / bearing play, possibly knotted tire or bent rims.

Some? then all of the above are possible.

What kind of tires do you have on the front of it? Single rib or very over inflated 3 ribs will cause that. Worn out steering box, loose tie rod ends, etc can cause it too.
