shakes like hell when making right turns

going to check the lugnuts cause i have one ex who might possibly be vindictive ... but if thats not it what do you guys think? I havent hit nothin hella hard, and all the tires are aired up good checked all the pressures yesteday, fairly new tires too ... it just started doing this today. Also, it shakes no matter what doesnt matter if im on the gas or coasting in neutral

the truck is a 99 mazda b2500 xcab 4cyl 5spd 2wd if that helps ... it has like 90k on it

I have done that. Actually I have done worse. I got stuck in some snow so I set the e brake and got out of my truck to dig myself out a bit. Then I got back in and tried to take off. I couldn't figure out why I kept stalling my truck so I floored it and dumped the clutch while in 4low. The wheel cylinders were ripped off of the backing plates and the brake lines were also pulled into the drum. Yeah I know.

Check your drums now. They may need to be turned.
