bad wandering

I have a completely stock 88' Wrangler. I run 30" x 10" tires and have recently put in new bushing all around. I have had a wandering problem for the last 6 months. There is no uneven wear or loose parts that I can see. I have had it in twice in the past 2 months to have it checked out and "they" say everything is properly alligned. At low speeds everything feels tight and secure at about 25 and up the steering seems to wander heavily with the angle of the road. I am curious if this could be caused by old worn springs and if so how to tell if they need to be replace. Or if it may be in the shocks or steering gear box somewhere. When not moving the gear box feels tight and has no play. Any ideas.

I had a little bit of wander in my '90 so I replaced my steering stabilizer and it helped out quite a bit... Just something you might want to consider if it is the stock steering stabilizer...

Are you talking about the shock or the stabilizer that goes from the axle to the frame?

If there is alot of steering play, it is likely to be your box. Could need a simple adjustment (tightens up the play).
