Default Steering question

Hello,

Having a steering issue that I need help with.i have a 1998 150 2wd. Replaced brake rotors, pads, the upper and lower ball joints, all of the tie rod ends, and had an alignment. After picking up the truck and drove around for the day I notice a sway to both left and right. Alignment shop didn't mention anything out of the ordinary. I'm not sure what else to look at. It nots that bad but it doesn't quite feel right. Should I take back to shop or a, I. Issuing something?

Pitman or Idler arm could be loose. Check it by having someone turn the wheel right and left while you look underneath. If either or both should pop when they go the opposite way of turning, then one or both or bad.
