anyone have any ideas?

OK, so here is whats happening. Over the past few days, I've noticed my passenger side feeling wierd. When I weave side to side, the passenger side dips noticably more than the drivers side, and it makes a noise like either the tire is grinding the pavement a little, or as wierd as this sounds maybe a steering pump noise? The first time it happened I thought I had a flat because it gave the sensation of rolling on its sidewall, or like something was loose. When I weave to the right, the drivers side doesn't dip quite as much and feels tighter and more controlled, and doesnt make the tire noise unless I weave really hard.

Its got a crank, prekey, beltech shackles, and Destination MT's-265/75/16. I also removed the drivers side swaybar end link. I've had the end link and the prekey done for a few weeks prior to this, the crank and shackles since it was new almost and this is the first time I've experienced any wierdness. The tire pressure is good and it looks like everything is solid underneath. Could a blown shock maybe cause this? Could having the sway bar hooked to only one side cause unexpected stiction of some sort? Any input is hugely appreciated!!!
