Handling Questions????

I have an 04 X and like alot of yours there is a wandering problem... Mine isn't lifted... I have new shocks, new steering box, all new ball joints, new rims and tires... Everything I did has helped the wandering problem but its not totally gone... I have read about a hellwig rear sway bar... I looked it up and see there is also a front swaybar... And do I get the 1 1/4 or the 1 1/2?

My question is should I install both and is there anything else I can do? The steering also doesn't want to return to the center real well... I really want this thing to drive better... I have an 09 Duramax 2500 that I drive for work and love the way it steers compared to my X... I understand they r two diff trucks with diff suspension but from what I've read so far I can get the X to handle alot better....

Any ideas would be great.... Thanks alot
