check your sway bar links. When I bought mine it was already lifted and they didn't put at least discos/longer links and one snapped at the joint, it was kinda doing the same thing. just a thought

Check your track bar bushing on the axel side, mine was doing the same thing, have some body watch it while you wiggle the steerng wheel, you should be able to see it catching, if so its just slop due to the bushing being bad, you can try to tighting the bolt for a temp fix, but replace it soon or you'll find your self with the ever famous death wobble, hope this helps

Yes death wobble is when your front end/steering is shaking going down the road, it means your front end is walking side to side while your driving, typicaly when referred to being really bad wabble in the steering or axel
