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?

what would be the best way to see if a "axle" tube was bent?
