I'm not sure if this will solve your problem, but I've managed to get much more even layers by tightening up all the screws on my printer (set screws on the pulleys and motors as well as all of the screws holding the frame together), tightening the springs on the bed to reduce bouncing, and keeping the rods oiled/greased.
