I Can not figure out what would cause the front wheels to be bowed in at the top. When we are driving down the freeway and hit a bump going about 65-70 The ranger wants to take off to the other lane (It sways really bad almost throwing us into the next lane), I have noticed that the front wheels where bowed in at the top and I checked the ball joints and the tire rods and they seem Okay. The Wheel bearings I have not checked yet, This weekend I will. I was just wanting your guys' Opinion on what you think the problem is.
1988 Ford Ranger XLT Standard cab, 2.9L V6, 5 Speed stick, 2wd.
the twin i-beam (2wd) and twin traction beam (TTB-4x4) are notorious for that when the springs start to get weak. another cause could be worn ball joints, which could cause the darting you are describing.

first replace shocks to stop swaying/floating and then have it aligned...
