Control arms and track bar

I have a stock 93 cherokee country. I bought it used as a project truck and after buying it found a crappy patch was done on the body where the steering box likes to pop off... I had the body straightened and a good patch and weld done and put on a new steering box and pump.. blah blah blah

anyway, after all this was done I started getting a bad front end wobble at high speeds...took it to a mech and he said I needed new control arm bushings, So I got new bushings and had them replaced, both upper and lower... I got it back and still had the wobble mech told me it was the track bar. I have noticed that the wobble is not as bad if I keep the air in the tires perfectly balanced (what a pain)

I have been researching new track bars and think I might go with rockauto.com as a supplier (local places want way too much)

I have two questions:

1. do you agree that it is probably my track bar and I need a new one?

2. is rockauto a good place for parts like this?

Have you had it aligned?
Balanced the tires?
What is the condition of all of your tie rod ends?
(Sorry, that's all I got)

Not yet but my alignment doesn't seem to be off by that much

Balanced the tires?
Yes I put on new wheels and tires when I bought it and had them balanced

What is the condition of all of your tie rod ends?

wheel bearings could cause death wobble also.

Call me lazy, but I prefer to sit or laydown infront of my jeep while someone rocks the steering back and forth while I watch to see what moves that shouldn't. Tie Rod Ends and Track bars are the most common answers.
