Steerng issue

OK I know this is a common issue, but I haven't found the answer I'm looking for so I hope posting something will help speed up me getting this thing fixed.
2008 Dodge Mega cab 2500 80,000 miles
6" lift
37" Toyo Open Country MT
all suspension components have been replaced
adjustable ball joints
Steering box stabilizer
Red Head steering box
Borgesson steering shaft
Fox steering stabilizer
Fresh alighnment

This thing wanders all over the road...any ideas what else I could be missing? It wasn't that bad a few months ago but it is still very uncomfortable to drive at highway speeds.
Has anybody ever had good luck with Toyo tires? This is my second set and I'm not impressed. They are about half worn and I am thinking of trying something else. Any ideas?

Call Thuren.Don or Aaron should be able to help. The added height doesn't help but they know their stuff. Don sells a heim steering system that's supposed to work very well for guys with tall lifts.
I need to get mine realigned per their specs.
