    I just put a 4in lift and 35in tires on my 87 K5.Everything is ok except there is a lot of swaying on the front end only at low speeds. When I hit about 40 its fine.

    Any Help

    check the torque on your spring plates and eye bolts. If all is good start checking your tie-rod ends and the ball joints for play. It will be more noticeable once lifted than it was before if there is play in the system

    I replaced the ball joints and wheel bearings

    recheck the bearings, if they didn't seat 100% once you drive it they will get loose. Most likely if you get the front end off the ground you will find that something has a little bit of slack in it. If not rotate the front tires to the rear and visa versa and see if that makes a differance.
