Truck swaying like crazy in the rear please help

Truck swaying like crazy in the rear. I can't find the problem. I have replaced upper and lower ball joints, u-joints, in both sides in the front, , checked the rear shocks, steering shock, put new tires on, Truck is not lifted 2000 f-250 4x4 I'm going to change the front sway bar end links tomorrow. Has anyone had this problem? It sways like a race car on slicks with low air pressure. It is scary to even drive it. Please help! Thanks

Have you checked the spring bushings? Axle U-bolts still there? Lug nuts tight? Cab bolts? Do you have vinyl seats? Armor All them lately? Hearing any clunks when the truck sways? What brand and size tires did you put on? What pressure are you running? Are you absolutely sure you don't have a broken spring? Check all the leaves in the packs.

For the record, only one question was smart assed.

Did it do it after the tires? I've seen issues with tires...feels like the truck is so (excuse the NASCAR term) loose you can't keep it straight.

swaying before the tires and after the tires. Theirs no play in the steering wheel. Just if you turn the wheel right then left the truck sways bad in the back.
