the sway bar won't make your vehicle shake. Even if it's broken on one side. all the sway bar does is hold the truck down when you go into a turn. It may male a lot of noise when it rattles around over rough roads but no shake. Look for some other reason for the shake. Wheel balance? Out of round tire? Engine misfire? bad U-joint?

if the turn signals work until you turn on your running lights or headlights on I would look at the light bulbs. someone might have put a single element in a dual element socket. if not then you're going to need to look at your wiring and the turn signal switch. The brake and turn lights should be on a separate wiring systems but they might be using a common ground. so if there is a problem with the ground in one circuit the other circuit may become the ground.

fuel gauge is another circuit all together. you will need to trace the circuit and see if it's a wiring problem, a bad gauge or a bad sending unit.
