Yeah, that's the feeling of your sway bar needing to get fixed. I didn't drive it on the highways until I was able to get it fixed.
My car feels fine while I've got my foot on the gas, or steering around a curve, under load. It's when I let off completely that it feels like the front shifts one way then the other then back to center. It's a brief sensation, not felt in the steering wheel, and can be avoided by slowing down slowly instead. I'm unable to avoid highways, I live in the boonies, but I've certainly become a slower driver. I will never get a speeding ticket :D
