My 89 rocks side to side

Took the traction and sway bars off in October. Was driving on the freeway headed out for deer hunting and every large hump, crossing overpasses, and when a semi passed me it would rock really bad side to side. Slowed down to 60 (only able to get it safely up to 65). Have since replaced the shocks went cheap because planned on new springs with in the coming year. It heped but didnt cure the pronlem. Do I need to up the time line?

If your having that kinda issue you got two option. 1 put the sway bar back. 2 buy new springs. If you get adjustable shocks that will help too. Im nomlay doing 70-80mph on the freeway with no sway bar, and 36" swamper bias plys. I just stiffin my shocks abit and I'm all good. I soften them before I go wheeling.
