Fiesta mk3 swaying under braking

I've replaced both rear shocks because they had had it, and both front lower arms (one more recently and the other around 1,500 miles ago).
I have tested the brake balance on a brake tester and made sure all the wheels spin freely I.e no brakes binding on.

assuming no accident damage (ie its started a while after you got the car) id be looking at tyre pressures, tyre SIZES (fitting 185/55x14s onto a diesel engined car did odd things to the handling - just trust me on that!!! as can odd sized tyres on the same axle - again speaking from experience!) then id be looking towards the front shocks, then after that its looking like rear axle bushes etc.
tyre pressures would definitely be my first check as i remember mine (pre bigger wheels) did something similar when the tyres were low but didnt look like they were. its also cheaper than a pair of front shocks, which would be next in line!

The car was perfectly fine until I took it off the road for around 2 months, before I put it back on the road I replaced all four tyres with cheap winter tyres, all the pressures are the same and it's the original size, think this could have a bearing on it?

maybe a braking issue, seized or sticky caliper maybe
