When driving at higher speeds 60 plus and hit bumpy spot in road the front tire start shacking severly wont stop till slow down alot. It dosnt happen very often or at slow speeds. The steering is tight drives well. I recently took to shop to get repaired they replaced ball joints brake rotors and steering stableizer. I had a friend with a F-350 with the same problem is this a common ford problem. What should I try next to stop it?

Not a common problem at all. And highly unsafe.

Go under vehicle and have someone wiggle steering wheel fast with front end off the ground and feel for play in the tie rods. Ball joints, stabilizer bar mounts. And suspension components.
