Coming home from work tonight I crossed some train track and got a real bad shake from the front end, bad enough that I had to pull over. As soon as I stopped, it stopped, and it ran fine all the way home. I've noticed that when I turn really hard to the left I get the same sort of loose feeling in the right front (where the wobble came from). I'm thinking ball joints? I jumped up and down on the front bumper and the shocks feel firm on both sides...any idears fellers? :confused013:

no ball joints, you got old school king pins. I'd jack up the front end and use a pry bar to see how much play you have in the kingpins. Then check tie rod ends, shocks, springs etc. Are your tires balanced?
