Very (Scary) Loose front end on 66, any suggestions?

I have a 66 Convert that I finally got on the road after a bunch of engine work. Once at highway speeds and large bump in the road sends the car swerving of the's very sketchy to say the least. Any suggestions (Do I need a susp rebuild?) I have not messed with the suspension yet at all (Except new shocks up front). However, the engine mods have left my car about 75-90 pouns lighter up front. Now the body rests way higher (I am planning new coils with a 1 inch drop)

Cars that are pulled around by ruts and irregularity in the road surface are quite often not aligned well. Too little caster can really make a front end feel squirrely. In any case, if it's been 50k or more miles since the last front end rebuild, I'd agree with the others - just suck it up and do the suspension/shocks/steering rebuild or replacement. It may cost you a grand, but that sort of thing is not to be taken lightly. It can kill you as quickly as bad brakes!
