Check your trac bar. Either the bar is loose at the bracket by the frame or the ball joint on the axle is bad.

it pry wouldnt hurt to just upgrade to a better style a company (who's name escapes me atm) makes an adjustable trac bar with hiem joints on both ends that supposedly eliminates the wobble.

Ford Track Bar Miscellaneous - Ford 2000-04 F250/F350 4wd- 1" replacement track bar
This is an example. I put one on mine after putting a 2.5 leveling lift on the front.

Depending on what lift brand you have you may either need new bushings in your track bar if worn, new bar, castor shims if your castor is stock as its inadequate or 4 link arms so you can adjust your castor to 5*+..also will ride better. If we can help solve it please PM..have everything needed.
