handling question

I have an older "88" YJ and it follows every roll or swail in the road. If you look at the front view of the jeep the front shackles lean a little, do the bushings wear out and how hard is it to replace them? Would that cause the handling problem? any help is appreciated.

Replacing the bushings is a good idea and not too difficult. But to diagnose your problem, I'd say just tighten them up first. Generally, the symptoms you describe are caused by tires.
