Default XJ wandering / driving all over the place

Hey ,

So my 2001 RHD XJ has a 2 inch lift on it with -25 offset 31 inch tires.

Since i put the tires on the jeep seems to be moving all over the place especially at high speed. The steering box is tight and the jeep goes straight at low speeds however the wheel is very touchy when moving left to right as though its overcorrecting.

The alignment is right according to the shop however they mentioned it may be needed to get some adjustable control arms installed to fix the problem.

Just wondering if anyone has encountered a similar problem and if there is a way they might of overlooked?

Thanks

Wandering at highway speeds can be related to the toe-in or any of the
steering components. There should be 1/8 to 3/16 inch of toe-in on the front.

How fast is high speed? What make and model of tires? What tire
pressure are you running?

How old is the steering stabilizer? Do you have a stock sway bar or does it have
disconnects? Are its bushings all tight? Are the tie rod ends all new? Is the
steering box firmly bolted in?

Check your track bar and mount.. The holes on my mount were worn badly. Since i've replaced the track bar and mount, i haven't had any of the issues that you mention above. before i replaced them it would wander back and forth at speed.
