91 HOPPING AROUND

1991 Mercury Sable

91 mercury sable. 148,000 miles. For some time now the car starts to hop around, like back & forth, when at about 35 miles an hour. Lately it has began to hop at any speed it is steadily running at. If I eccelorate it stops, or if I let off the gas completely it stops. What could causing this hopping around? It has been running fine besides that. It has been drive intown only for the past 3 years or so at speeds of under 50 mph, until I got it, and now is driven on the hyway frequently.

The windshield wipers also have a problem. When the squirters are used, the wipers wont shut off untill the car is turned off.

Signal switch for the wipers or the fluid pump in the resevoir hopping around could be tires, shocks. Coils. Wheel bearings, brake rotors?
