Default Shake

Have you checked front wheel bearings, tie rod ends, center link and ball joints? What about the shocks? Have you tried different wheels and tires? Is the alignment within specs? Has the car always done this or is it a recent problem? Has the frame been damaged? Is the front end tied to the rest of the car with the cage?
Just some things to start with.
