Still having sway problem, need advice

Well, I have replaced all the ball joints, link and center joints, new rubber coupler in steering, power steering box, but I am still getting some sway while driving. Not as much as before, but it is still there.

Tires? Yup, can it be the damn tires? They are Cooper Discoverer H/T, but they are not E rated tires. Max PSI is only like 35. The load number is 106, which is low.

I bet it is these crappy tires that are the cause, what do you guys think?

Oh, I the king pins are nice and tight, the only other thing I will be replacing this week is the Axle pivot bushings. The old one's look like they are cracking.

If your running some P tires (4 to 6 ply) with only 35# of air pressure there going to wander. Some brands are going to be worse than others but there is a lot of weight on that front end sepeciaaly if its four wheel drive. Those P series tires aren't designed for a diesel.

Be a little bit careful where you get you truck aligned. There aren't many real good alignment people that can work on Ford pickups. Around here in a fifty some mile radius there are probably only a couple out of 20 or so that know what they're doing.
