Rear end swaying side to side

I had a pretty bad camber issue. I just replaced the rear upper control arms with some adjustable ones, hoping it would also get rid of the swaying. When i drive, the rear end wanders side to side.
Any idea what it could be?

What year and how many miles? Decent chance itís the rear ball joints, but thereís a handful of things under there that can cause your symptoms.

I had the same symptoms so i had the subframe bushings replaced. They were completely shot. Replacing them solved the issue of the rear feeling wobbly.
