Default Pulling right and a little squirrely on Hwy?

Hello all! I have a 2002 1500 Sport 5.9 All stock.
Problem I am having is my truck pulls to the right and it is pretty squirrely on the Hwy when I am on a curve turning to the right or left and hit any kind of little bump or surface change the front seems to lose traction and then the rear and the whole truck gets squirrely (kinda whips around)
This is especially concerning while towing my Travel Trailer.
Any ideas you guys have? Anybody seen/experienced this before? I am going to check my ball joints this weekend and possibly replace the shocks?
