Default Wobble while turning to go forward after reversing....

98 ram 1500 5.2

After I reverse out of a parking space, and then put the truck in drive, and turn the wheel the other direction while accelerating to go forward.... the wheels will wobble until I fully straighten out. If I do this process nice and slow, the wobble isn't there. I also noticed that after reversing, if I start to accelerate forward WHILE turning the wheel in the direction that I want to go, it's usually gonna happen. If I turn the wheel in the direction I want to go BEFORE accelerating, it won't happen. If I accelerate and turn at the same time nice and slow, it will never happen. I did change the front rotors a couple months before this started, is there a chance I didn't tighten down the rotors enough with the giant nut that holds them in place?

Any ideas what this could be?

Thanks

Lift front tires off the ground, and see which part is loose.

Yep, jack up the front, and inspect ALL of the steering components, from the intermediate shaft, all the way out to the wheel bearings. See what's loose.
