Well I've noticed that when I go over bumps (even small ones) in the road, my steering wheel jerks a bit in the direction of the wheel going over the bump. It isn't speed dependent, same amount of movement no matter what speed. I haven't felt this in other cars I've driven or maybe it just wasn't as noticeable? I have brand new tie rods inner/outer the car just had a 4-wheel alignment, i do have a bit of vibration between 90-105 km/h so i think my wheel balance is out but i don't think this could cause it, could it? I have super hicas 240 so it comes stock with stiffer suspension and front/rear sway bars could this be why? Any help would be great!! Thanks.

Check the steering rack bushings for wear. Also check the tension rod bushings.

yeah

tension rods play a pretty big role in how your steering is affected by the road. I recently replaced my stock tension rods with megan racing adjustible tension rods and as soon as i had them adjusted to what i like, my steering wheel hasent really moved to much going over bumps. i do get more feel out of what i go over tho.
