When cruising around 60-70 mph, the car quickly sways left and right. The steering wheel doesn't jerk or anything, instead the car jitters. This only happens sometimes on the highway, but it's pretty obvious and kind of annoying.
^ This sound like how my friend described my car after I had more negative camber dialed in when on the highway where there was a difference in the surface because there was construction. My car definitely feels noticeably more darty in following road imperfections at speed than around town.

Could be noticeable enough only at those speeds to generate a complaint for the poster. Could be a combination of the speed and the surface. At lower speeds, it won't feel as if it's occurring with as much frequency than at higher speeds.

So, might as well check... if you have abdominal pain, it doesn't mean you should get your appendix out or that you have cancer, you might as well try a dose of Pepto first.
