Swaying when braking help

searched all over to find this but I couldn't. I have a 01 24v with a 6 inch lift on 37s with 20x14's. Steering has been a big issue for this truck ever since I got it. everything from a broken track bar to a new gear box. Just about everything has been replaced. I have always had a pretty bad sway when braking semi hard. I am not sure if it started after I put the new 37s on it. Before the truck had some worn out 35s. It has new tie rods tie rods ends, new gear box , new track bar and bracket, new sway bar end links, bilstein steering stabilzer, and a steering box stabilizer from previous owner (not sure if its worn out). I am not sure if maybe the worn out bushings on the sway bar itself could be doing it but if anyone has a clue what the sway could be when braking feel free to share. this is basically the last piece to get my steering perfect. thanks :confused013:

well I guess we will see what happens when I put these longer control arms on. they aren't true long arms but they are meant for the lift I have on there. I was actually just looking for where to get all new bolts for the control arms does anyone know where to find them at? also on simply install tips for control arms. heard jack up truck put the Frame on jack stands let the suspension droop down unbolt and remove one side at a time then use tire to roll forward install new ones and repeat. does that sound right to anyone?
They aren't stock. The guy who owned it before be made a 7 inch lift out of a 5 inch lift. But the control arms are Definently to short. I rub with 37s bad so that's why I got new ones. Hoping to get them on this weekend if I can get bolts for them from the local dealer.
