I went the same route. You should also check out the caster cams, which sounds more like the problem you are trying to solve.

Icon adj. track bar is the way to go. That will pull your axle back centered under your truck. Although I suspect your bump steer is the same thing I got when I first put my level on. The level kit changed the castor to about 2.25 deg. You really want to shoot for 4 deg. or so. That should eliminate the bump steering you are getting.
