Steering damper is the wrong place to start!

1. Hub swivel tension ... How To Adjust Your Swivel Pin Preload - Land Rover Forums - Land Rover Enthusiast Forum

2. track rod and steering rod ends ... check for wear ... they are cheap to change

3. bushes - check with big pry bar

4. shock absorber - if they are worn it can lead to steering shake

Check your pan hard rod bushings and the rest of them. Old truck. Probably old bushings.

Swivel preload could cause it also; however, it is the most complicated . Check your bushings first.

Panhard Rod Bushings (and bolts)

Steering box bolts may have loosened

Regardless of the symptom, always, always check or just blindly replace the rear link - chassis bushings.

After doing everything else, mine was swivel preload. I second LeastOnce completely.
