Strange Bumping Issue

So, very recently my car has developed a problem than I just don't know how to get rid of. As a preface I did just install rear Koni Shocks and Steeda springs but this problem was happening before all of that went on.

Basically, if my car has sat for a little and I go to drive off the road feels REALLY bumpy... Almost as if i'm driving over a bumpy dirt road. The weird thing is that it goes away after I drive for a while but if you really try and feel for it, its still there. It's almost as if it practically goes away after part of the car is warmed up but not fully... At highway speeds it's pretty much not noticeable but if the cars been sitting and I do some city driving the car feels like its bouncing around like crazy.

The tires are new and after my suspension mods I had it aligned and all 4 tires balanced. They all have proper air pressure in them and I even pulled my spark plugs to check them... I have no idea what this is >.<

My Dad and a friend of mine seem to think it might be the DCT since it isn't warmed up all the way until I start driving around and this problem did start showing itself when it started getting REALLY cold here in Jersey.

I've even left the car running for 10 minutes before driving it and it makes no difference at all. So weird.
