trac/sterring issue

Need a little help. The search didnt really turn up must that I'm not aware of. Sterring has always been sketcy. Before the lift and tires I just assumed it was the tiny small tires and crappy roads. AFter the lift its still there but worse. Many times it feels more like Im correcting the steering then driving if that makes any sense. The jeep just kind of wonders on the road and Im just countering. I have the RC 2.5 BB and shock extenisions. After the eyeball test the axles didnt move all that much maybe an 8th of an inch or a little more. Should I get the adjustable trac bar? Anyone had this issue that could give me an idea on how to fix? AFter reading thats what I'm thinking is put the trac bar braket on the rear and adjustable up front and get another alignment?????????? Or could it be just simple as getting stiffer shocks ride is a bit soft?????

Bigger tires will wonder a bit more but first check your alignment.

Toe in and caster.

Toe can easily be adjusted.

Caster can only be corrected with use of adjustable control arms, cam bolts or AEV drop brackets.
