Question New TJ'er to the family... With questions of course. Thanks!

Hi all, I have a '99 TJ sport with pretty much all the bells and whistles. The only downfall is I literally only know what 30% of them do. I know it sounds crazy but I traded an '03 CTS for the rig! Hence me being oblivious. Anyhow, 3 months after the trade, the TJ has been handling funny... Its not a "DW", but it wants to jerk right/left once hitting a pothole or something uneven in the road. The steering has much more play than it did when I got it. Also, I feel the rear control arms may be loose? The rear wheels have so much "give" in them, it has started to ride like it would if I were about to go crawling rocks. The wheels give to any uneven part of the road making the rear end want to sway; actually, the whole thing wants to sway at any given moment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated with this. I HAVE to get to know the rig and it's components before I take it wheeling!
