a lot of new parts

hi everyone. i got a 89 2wd 4.0 5spd with 120,000 miles 100% stock. im still fixin it up and driving it daily. but here is what im dealin with. i just installed
new ball joints upper and lower, new tie rods inner and outer and new
wheel berings and steering stabilizer. when i hit bumps the steering wheel
jerks and some times makes a tire squeel noise. i get the same noise when
turning at low speeds as well as a lurking feeling like its 4wd. and the
wheels appear to have a little bit of chamber which is weird cuz of the strait
axle. any suggestions on the symptoms? thanks for reading

Have you verified that that "axle" up front isn't bent?
