My B2 has the same issue. I've only had it a couple of weeks and haven't had much time or money to throw at it yet. I know for sure that mine needs new shocks and tie rod ends. I can turn the passenger side front tire almost an inch without any other steering parts moving. So I would first check the steering components.

Is there still play in your steering after replacing all 4 tie rod ends? To pinpoint have someone slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth while you watch all the steering components for play. It could be in your steering box or the rag joint on the shaft. If no play in the steering next put jack stands under the frame and check for play in the suspension. Rubber bushings like at the radius arm ends and on the twin traction beams can wear out causing the wheels to wander independently which really messes with alignment. Once you've got all steering and suspension issues resolved it's time for a professional wheel alignment.

Thanks for the update. Too late now but fix all steering/suspension play... then alignment.
