Welcome...I suggest you bring it back to the alignment shop. If something was wrong they should have fixed it. And if they couldnt fix it they should have told you about it.

You are "wandering" you need a bit more "grooving".. Caster increase will do it..Did you install adjustable front lower Control Arms (CA)..and adj. track bar as well??

Get an alignment check done. Be sure you have the results printed out..
Don't accept responses like "all checks out OK".. Caster and the differences between LH and RH will be important..

Double check your control arm mounts. Make sure everything is tight and there's no movement front to back on either side.

My cousins 03 did that after he lifted his. He checked everything on the suspension couldn't find nothing. After driving it like that for 3 weeks he stopped by and put it up on my neighbors hydraulic lift and we started checking everything. Ended up being a busted transmission mount. He ordered polyurethane replacements off ebay and never had the problem again

Your TJ simply has a good case of "bump steer" caused by someone having installed a dropped Pitman arm. Remove the dropped Pitman arm and after reinstalling the factory OE Pitman arm, your steering problem will be cured. The dropped Pitman arm screws up your steering system geometry unless a corresponding dropped upper trackbar mount has been installed. Your ProComp suspension does not use a dropped upper trackbar mount so a dropped Pitman arm should have not been installed.

As you accelerate/deaccelerate, your front suspension is lifting/compressing which forces the steering left/right which is what bump steer is.
