Question Weird woble from rear. Vauge steering?

Ok so on Saturday I bout my wife a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
It seamed to drive good when I test drove it but now she is complaining that the rear of the truck wobles or sways left to right as she drives.

What could be causing this?

She is also complaining that the steering feels lose, but it feels like most Jeeps with a solid front axle to me. Its a bit vauge, but its not a sports car.

My plan is to pull the wheels off tomorrow and inspect it.

Thanks fo the help.

All 4 tires are new. It seams to only do it bad on rutted roads, and when you go over pot holes and bumps.

If it ever stops raining Ill pull the wheels and see I can find any thing wrong with it.

Sorry if some of my questions are noob questions. But Im new to 4x4s. Not new to working on cars thou.

Thank you guys for the help!

Worn UCA's out back will cause wandering too, when mine went bad it would shift around when I was on/off the gas

I could not find any thing lose or worn out.
So I took it to a shop and had them look at it and they said there is nothing wrong with it.

I think its just that she is used to driving a sports car.
