DW most definitely is possible with IFS. Far, far less likely with IFS, but it can happen. I really don't think it's what the OP is experiencing though, not with an IFS truck that new, with just a leveling kit.
Experienced DW from the passenger seat in an IFS rig about two years ago. More scary from the passenger side as I felt totally helpless to do anything about it. In my best friends '99 GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 - had 215K miles on all original front end parts. I ended up replacing all four ball joints, the pitman arm and the idler arm to get rid of it. Strangely, the tie rods were loose as a goose but he was out of money for new parts in one day so I left the old ones in and the DW has never come back even though those totally worn out tie rods are still there.
I also experienced DW semi regularly in a very worn out old '74 Chev 3/4 ton 2WD truck I owned a million years ago.
Other than that, all the times I've had it or witnessed it has been with SFA's. Jeeps, mostly.
But I'm just dragging this off into the weeds. I highly doubt the OP actually has DW and for all practical purposes, it's probably not too far wrong to just say it doesn't really happen with IFS.
