And i mean for a sway not a bump steer but a sway like driving in a cradle.

It is lifted about 2-4 inches with a budget boost blocks in the springs looks like after market control arms.

Yeah i replaced the stock trac bar with a jks adjustable trac bar and it is properly aligned. I almost want to get rid of it cause ive had it for a year and i get seasick driving it. Its all over the road and rocks like a cradle. Ive tried about everything ( pitman arms, trac bar, bushings, frequent alignment, smaller tires and some other things i cant remember.) I know its not death wobble or bump steer. Please help haha

Take pictures and post them up. Steering, track bar, pitman arm, control arms--essentially a front end and suspension overview.

that track bar is going to hit the tie-rod without 2" front bumpstop extensions.

post pics of the springs too...the whole spring, maybe with the tire turned to one side. and yes, the arms look like fixed poly bushing aftermarket POS's.

post pics of the rear too...springs, track bar, etc.
