rumble ... please help me out!

i'm on FTW, and I posted a thread about this ... I figured I'll try over here too... here's the problem

i pressure washed everything underneath ... steering, brakes, wheels, axles, differentials, etc...

... when i'm driving now, there's this rumble that happens ... starts when i hit 35-40, and i think if i go faster than 50, my truck is going to shake itself apart... it feels like i'm driving on elliptical tires, that's seriously the only way to describe this ... it's the weirdest feeling, and the truck just feels like i'm driving over telephone poles one after another after another...

also, when i hit the brakes ... it's all well and good UNTIL i get to 5mph and under ... then there's a grinding, and it does NOT feel / sound good. gets much worse if the wheels are turned too.

anyone that can help, please do .... thank you!

my only guess would be that some of the balance weights came off?
