You need to tighten your trac bar, I mean really really tighten it. I watched my buddy hang from the wrench and hes built like a truck and the bolt moved enough to stop his 12 inch lifted truck from doing that.

did that work???

I have a 4" BDS lift with a 3" leveling kit in the front and 39.5/13.50/20 iroks and it just started doing it. I took it back to the shop, rotated the tires and now its gone pretty much.

my truck does it pretty bad, like to skid sideways a little on a good bump, a guy came into our shop with the same problem, we installed an Aftermarket dual steering stablizer along with the factory and it was night and day difference, he said it handles great and doesnt wobble at all

I'm thinking it's the trac bar as well. I would re-torque everything again too. If it still does it, check your ball joints, wheel bearings, trac bar bushing.
