loose front end components. A arm bushings possibly. causing the front wheels to oscillate back and forth

Are you running the same tires it's been sitting on for five years?

If it sat for five years, you probably have flat spots in your tires. Rubber holds memory after a while.

Could be alignment, tires, brakes too tight and draggging, or any number of things. Jack the front off the ground and check for play in the front by wiggling the tires. Start wiggling top and bottom to check bearing play, then side to side to see if the tie rods, and steering pieces are worn out.
If all that is good, then spin the tires and check for runout or flat spots. Might also have them spun to check runout and balance.
