Ford Shimmy

My rig has started a bad front end shimmy at over 55mph. Would these be a wheel balance or ball joint issue? Thoughts?
Thank you

I would have several things checked. Wheel balance, loose lug nuts or wheel bearings, bad tie rod end, loose ball joint, steering pitman arm, ball socket on center link (if equipped), brake caliper hanging up, or broken belt in a tire. Just some things to look at first.

Is it an "up and down" shimmy or a "side to side" shimmy?
