'72 CJ5 lift help (4in)

So far I like the 33's on I and the lift it has, but it's rigged by the PO and it's scarey at hwy speeds. It's like a 2 1/2 homeade shackle lift and it sways badly and the fronts are bent inward. I heard don't do a SOA. For not over like $600 shipped on a 4in kit, what kit would be best? I'm a newbe and my wife will be driving this so I don't want it the way it is. This homeade shackle doesn't have bushings in it either so that's some of the sway. I can get the original shackles from the guy also. Got quoted $450 for a RC 2.5 kit but that seemed high.

I put a 4wd hardware brand 2.5 in lift on my 79CJ5 and loved it. Coupled with a 1" body lift, I fit 33s with no problem.
