Wandering steering

Little problem that I'm trying to diagnose. I have a 79 Pace Car, that I've updated everything on. It now has a 2003 Cobra rack, the MM steering shaft, caster/camber plates, and 95 model spindles with Cobra brakes. The power steering pump, and lines, have also been replaced. All of the struts, ball joints, bushings, and inner/outer tie rod ends are even new.
Even after having the front end aligned, the car wanders while driving in a straight line. It's almost like it has a dead spot in the steering,, I already replaced the steering rack twice (once with a Ford unit, and then a AGR unit) because of this issue, but the problem is still there. It's really frustrating because I can't figure it out, and the car just feels like it's not "in the road" and I feel it should be. It feels like it's on top of the road, and has no sure footing.
The only thing that the car doesn't have is a bumpsteer kit,, just wondering if that's the root of the problem, because the tie rods appear to have a pretty good angle to them.
Please help !!
