Default Straight axle problems

I'm hoping someone can help me. I just finished building my gasser nova, i installed a speedway straight axle. Took the car out for a ride and when i hit a bump in the road the steering wheel shook badly. Its not a bump steer more like a death wobble. Anyone have an idea how i could correct the problem Thanks Bill
