Fuel Tank baffles busted

Ok. I know I have one bad ball joint but i dont think that would be responsible for both left and right turns. When making a 90 degree turn or more the 91 deville stumbles as though the wheels are not turing in unison. I have not had the vehicle balanced rotated or aligned (due to failing ball joint) in quite some time. Runs great otherwise except there in some chop when driving straight. Please help. I'm out of work (and money) so I can't really take it in to the shop.

aha. you the man ranger. i'm gonna go fill up and try driving it again. i noticed this a 2 gallons before and im at 3 right now. crossing my fingers post again soon.
All hail Ranger for he is all knowing. That fixed it alright. However, I have noticed that this problem is becoming progressively worse I think. It started stumbling when the gauge (which I've tested for accuracy) read that I had four gallons in the tank. Replacing the fuel tank should fix the problem if it a matter of busted baffles right?
Same said car is starting to hesitate throughout range. Thinking it's the fuel pump. It's had a whine near the rear end for some time. Gonna check pressure tommorow. Any tips on replacement of pump? I don't really have a way to hoist the vehicle. I was going to set it up on jack-stands.
