Could be the track bar mount at the body is a little loose. But the best way to find it is to have someone steer back and forth while you crawl around feeling for where its coming from.

"If we collect data long enough, we may discover the root psychological cause for the "jeep thing".

So far it seems correlated to OCD and the need to look at one's poop."
