Default How to check steering stabilizer and box?

So I think my steering stabilizer and power steering box are contributing to my death wobble but i don't know how to check them to see if they are bad. Would these along with 2 bad sway bar endlinks and a bad sway bar bushing be causing my death wobble? complete idiot newb

steering stabilizers do not cause death wobble, they only mask it. Have an assistant turn the steering wheel rapidly back and forth (engine off) while you look at, listen to, feel all of the steering components.
