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

Drag link and or steering box. Get someone to sit in your truck and turn the wheel back and forth while you inspect the front end for movement/play. If everything is tight in the rear it's gotta be in the front and just transmitting to the rear
