One of the problems that I see might be the body lift.
If it was done with flexible materials like rubber instead of steel or aluminum OR the body lift has worked it's way loose in any way, that might be the cause of your problem.
If you can cause the body to easily move sideways just by pushing on it, the body lift may be loose.
If, when you push down hard on any corner of the vehicle, the vehicle "bounces" more than once then you have worn shock absorbers.
Worn shocks in combination with the higher center of gravity the body lift creates could cause the sensation of swaying that you feel.
As fordem mentioned, tire presssure is an important factor. Low tire pressure allows the tires to flex more which can cause the swaying that you feel. Higher pressure - while making the overall ride rougher - makes the tires run firmer which reduces the "swaying" feeling.
I hope that this helps!
