4x4 Shop or Mechanic in Mendon / Rutland

I am new to JeepForum. I read a ton of information on here before purchasing my 96 Lifted 2 Door XJ. It runs great and is a beast in the woods. However on the road I have this weird kind of play.

It is hard to explain. The steering is pretty good. But there is a strange "wander." This is not my first lifted Jeep. I do know what wander is.

It seems that sometimes the wheels move with the changes in the road surface and those movements don't make it to the steering wheel. So I could be driving and the small changes in the road move the wheels but not the steering wheel....until a point and all of the sudden steering wheel "catches" and i am now a foot closer to the solder. It is manageable, but not a very enjoyable ride.

I have replaced the front U Joints and the Drag link TRE at the pitman arm, as I found these to be bad. Everything else looks nice and tight. The lift is a Rustys 4.5" 2 years old.

I am looking for someone local that may be able to help look at it or possibly just give me some advise.
