Not the DL, I went with a metalcloak on that. My tie-rod got settled, but required 130 ft/lbs, which is WAY higher than what it's supposed to be. Key is just to get as much thread exposed as you can to give it purchase to hold.
Hope this helps but I was having same problem and replaced my tires and it totally went away no problems no matter what bump I hit. The problem was running a new toe setting on a somewhat wore tire and they were not totally not balanced well. The new tires caused it to all go away. I even backed the pinch bolts back from 130 to 100 still no issues.

I went through days of checking and replacing , tightening parts to figure this out. Will make you feel crazy. But the tires took care of it.
