Are those walls supposed to be smooth?

Maybe you've got some Z-axis issues or some vibration problems. Those can both cause layer artifacts pretty easily.

yeah that looks more like a hardware issue. something slightly loose. a pulley, drive gear, etc

Try changing your layer height slightly. Some people claim that there's an interaction between layer height and the stepping of the Z-axis worm gear where the layer height isn't an integer number of steps, causing the Z axis to be too high/low occasionally. For example, this discussion: http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?340,313617,314368 .

Given that you're seeing regular bulges, and this sort of rounding error would occur regularly, that'd be my guess.

I change Z axis step settings I used microstep (1/16) changed 1/2 step and update firmware,
