Let's start with your last modification? one of the most common causes is loose suspension components... what air pressure are you running?

I put wheel spacers in.

Make sure spacers are tightened properly, and lug nuts are tight. Spacers increase Scrub Radius, ideally a line drawn through the upper and lower ball joint meets the ground at a certain point, the center of the tire footprint should be very close to that point resulting in easier turning of the front tires. Your tire contact points are now outboard of that point, increasing stress on steering components and wheel bearings, which will shorten their lifespan.

definitely make sure everything is tight... track bars tend to loosen up and elongate their mounting holes...
