TJ swaying

I cant seem to figure this one out. My jeep has been swaying (almost like a floating feeling) all over the road ever since I replaced the following parts: gearbox, ball joints, hub bearings, 2 tires, and universal joints. I also got it aligned and got the tires balanced. Ive dropped the sway bar down to be parallel with the drag link, messed with the tire pressure, ive even tried slight adjustments on the new gearbox. Nothing has seemed to work. I feel like it drove better with the old worn out parts on it. Im running 35x12.5x15 BFG Mud terrains and it has a 6" rubicon express lift. Anyone ever had the same problem? Need some advice on this one. Thanks everyone

Do you mean Track bar? How about some pictures of your front suspension?

Is the floating in your steering or in the actual suspension?

Both good questions and pictures definitely help.

Also, do you know what your alignment specs were? And do you have a dropped pitman arm?

Check sway bars and the track bar bolts at both ends.
