IS IT A "VIBRATION" OR MORE LIKE THE STEERING WHEEL IS JERKING LEFT AND RIGHT REAL REPETITIVELY?

IF SO, CAN YOU FEEL THE SAME THING L & R THING EVER SO SLIGHTLY WHEN YOU ARE GOING STRAIGHT?

LET ME KNOW, I'LL GO INTO GREATER DETAIL, SHOULD THIS BE THE CASE

SORTA SOUNDS LIKE A STEERING OR SUSPENSION, SOMETHING REALLY: BENT/ LOOSE/ TERRIBLY WORN ISSUE. OR YOUR TIRES ARE SLAP WORN OUT AND SLIDING/ JUMPING DURING THE U-TURNS

I WOULD TAKE IT TO A REPUTABLE ALIGNMENT SHOP FOR SOME "HANDS ON" DIAGNOSIS. DON'T WANT THE STEERING TO FAIL WHILE ON THE ROAD!
