Front end

Hey guys I have an 08 3500 srw and wondering what to do about the front end. I recently had thuren 3inch lift installed. I also upgraded the front steering to the T-style. Installed a new carli steering stabilizer and also had a redhead gearbox installed. The truck drove great for two weeks. But now the steering just feels loose. A bump in the road will cause the truck to go that direction. The highways here have a slight crown to them and can be uneven and it just feels like the truck is all over now. Ball joints are a year old with maybe 20,000 miles on them. Never had a problem before until I did all the work to it. Also it has new toyo r/t 35x12.5x18 on and they were balanced after the front work was done.

I've checked the nut seems to be right and the ball joints are napa brand but cant grease them. The little bolt in the grease hole is stripped so I cant get it out
No I didn't align to thurens specs I was dealing with two separate shops and in a hurry at the time. After doing more research and contacting thuren is when I found their recommended alignment specs.

I also read about the steering stabilizer and how they recommended certain ones. When I emailed thuren support they said the carli was a terrible one to use. At the time though I couldn't find theres. Isn't the carli stabilizer the same as thurens. I believe it is a IFP stabilizer just like thurens.
