My jeep is finally done, but the bad news is my steering. I have a 80 CJ5 with 35 inch tires, no sway bar, 4inch skyjacker suspension lift , 1 inch body lift. Power steering. Now when i go in a straight line over 25 mph my car tends to just jump right or left, and its hard to control it, very unsteady. I took it to get aligned and the place i took it too said they aligned it but the problem wasnt fixed they didnt even charge me. All the tires have the same amount of pressure, lol all the lugs are tight. Im thinking its the power steering gear box or pump, all the lines are new and hooked up right. No leaks or noises and it turns great both ways. What do you think is wrong, how do i fix it?

Let me guess, you're also running a damper type shock. (like "rancho").
If you are you'll need a "gas" charged shock for greater highway control..
