Jeep all over road

I have a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with a 4" lift that is all over the road when hitting even the smallest bumps. Recently it has started to pull to the right when I push on the clutch. Could it be the tires or shocks that are causing this issue? Everything in the front end has been checked by a mechanic but he sees nothing wrong. Any suggestions?

poor caster angle, bad alignment and possibly bad components. find a new mechanic or learn how to fix those items yourself.

Drop Pitman arm?

Thanks, I'll have to find me a new mechanic and ask him to check those items. It ashamed you can't find a competent individual to work on your vehicles these days.

That is why we're here, I usually don't have the time to do anything 9 months out of the year because of work. I don't hire anything out unless I absolutely have to not because of cost but because I want it done right.
I find my winter retreat in my garage modding my Jeep.

I may have to eventually go that route. I'm sure YouTube could teach me a lot

What kind of tires do you have and how many miles are on it? Has it been properly aligned? Have you tried rotating the tires to see if that would help with the pulling? What kind of shocks?

What size tires and how much air is in them? Do a dry steering test...Here's a video that shows how. The only problem with the video is that it doesn't mention the track bar which is very important to check as well while you're doing it. Here's also a labeled picture for you to identify the parts.

Could also be your track bar if you're still running stock vs an adjustable...

Edit: sorry water dog, didnt see you mentioned this until i posted
