I am replacing the CA’s, cam bolts, 2” BB and shocks. Currently it does drive ok, but it does like to dart around a bit. I have not checked the TRE’s or ball joints yet. With 220,000 miles I figure the steering box could stand some adjusting.
Are you doing track bars? Could help with that. Steering stabilizer too if its shot.

Exactly what I did. No DW and most importantly, no more negative toe causing wandering.

Toe-in shouldn't cause wander. It'll just make the steering numb. Toe-out can cause wander though. On mine, I'm running somewhere between 0 toe and 1/16" of toe out, I think. Drives great and has great steering response, although it does tramline noticeably in bad ruts.

Yes I am doing the bushings in the track bars. I'm about done with the rear; all 4 CA's, 2" BB, track bar bushings, shocks, sway bar bushings and links are done. I'm doing a little cleaning and fuel filter change today.
I should be able to start the front tomorrow weather pending.

Dont take this as an insult, but don't forget to re-torque the CA's with all 4 wheels on the ground. I can find the proper torques if you need them. Something I double checked after the shop worked on mine.

According to the links I posted, negative toe is pointed out and positive is in. That might be backwards but I don't know as I don't normally do alignments. My front wheels were pointed slightly out, causing a little wandering.

Ok. I've never heard anyone refer to it as negative or positive toe, just toe-in or toe-out.
