Default stang feels like it fish tailing when shifting

when I shift from 2nd to 3rd and so forth, the 08 Stang feels like it is slipping or fish tailing to the right.
I have put on the car
set of Ford Racing K springs
SR Performance Lower control arm
BMR upper control arm
UPI Lower control arm relocation kit
Prothane sway bar bushing
Gabriel rear ultra shocks

after all that it still feels like it is fish tailing when I shift
anyone know how to stop that fish tailing or swaying
any help would be very appreciated

First, inspect the suspension to ensure that everything is tight and functioning properly. If so, it's time for a tire upgrade.

Did you upgrade the panhard bar?
1989 5.0 LX vert auto. Rear cats removed, flow 50s replaced with straight pipes. Quieter with no drone than with the Flow 50s.
