Why? If he was all over the road, his rear end could also be an issue.
He didn't specify if the rear was wandering or had tail lag.

My comment is valid. It's a suggestion without actually seeing his rig in person.

Steering not returning to center is a symptom of alignment issues. So is wandering. I'd bet he has too much toe out. Dial it in and I'll bet it feels much better, and the best part is its free to test out. I'd still get an alignment by a professional though.

The OP already aligned Toe. Caster is the what causes the wheel not to re-center, bad Toe causes PULL and tire wear.

The rear anti-sway bar will only help during cornering to control sway and keep the vehicle level. It will not cover up or alleviate an alignment issue in the front end, nor cure the wheel not returning.

It is not valid for these symptoms. Its a suggestion that will only waste the OP's valuable money, and continue to throw money at the wrong areas.

Many cars do not have a rear sway bar, and they are not "all over the road"
