get someone to check out the front suspension, shocks, springs, etc... then if all looks good maybe an alignment. Also check your front tires to see if they are wearing even on both tires and both inner and outer edges of tires. If they are not wearing straight that can be another indication of something being wrong.

Check your tie rods and also your bushing bracket. Mine broke after slamming into a big pot hole and my sway bar was swaying as I was driving. Kinda scary. Also I am not sure if you have a steering stabilizer shock in the middle bottom of the car, that gets worn out. My friend just changed his stabilizer shock- it was original and 21 yrs old and pressure in it. It stopped the bouncing feeling in his steering.

There is one rule...there are no rules!
