Even if the ball joints are tight and no or little play if they are still the factory seeled ones the are probabley dry and that causes them to wander or another thing that would help is add a steering stabilizer shock on the front end or if it has one replace it but balljoints are the likely cause.

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model


The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4
