Inconsistent Layer Allignment (wavy wall surface)

Wondering if anyone has had this issue with their XL Single Tool and had sugestions on how to fix it. On all my prints that have vertical or near vertical walls the surface is wavy.

I attached an image of a recent print (all my prints have this issue). In the image you can see the surface has lines / humps and if you run your finder down it, you can feel the wavy-ness of it. Also, at the top part of the print you can see it actually printed how I expect it to print. It is a completely different color and if you run your finger down that part it is smooth. 

I don't have this issue on any of my MK4's so wondering if it is just something I need to adjust with the XL? I know people with multiple tool heads have layer issues and some of them solve it with greasing bolts or something. However since I just have a single toolhead nothing should be moving, right?

This issue happens with input shaper and no input shaper. It happens when printing one object or a bed of objects. It almost looks like a pattern too, like every 10-20 layers it gets slightly out of allignment and prints a hump/wave for a few layers then repeats.
