Smile rough ride

put on a new set of monroe struts on my 98 about a year ago the fronts were the easy struts with springs on had a full alignment done it rode really rough & seemed to want to dance around when hitting bumps called napa they said bring in monroe guy would ride with to check out he said they gave wrong struts on rear paid shop to replace with right ones & align seemed better but not like i expected new to be but i accepted now ride seems to be gettig worse & the dancing is a lot worse any thoughts would be welcomed thanks. one other thing i put on new bushing kits on front sway bar 1 yr ago also as one was bad.

If they were changed I imagine they would tell you if you needed new mounts. I would check your wheel bearings. Any unusual noises?
